Garage sale special

For sale a bunch of fine unused words, many misspelled
Poet can’t uses them; mind is on strike, the pen has been stilled

These words never used for they never quite seemed to fit
Got them online; advertisement said they were a complete poetry kit

Can’t send them back because I did use a few; the remainder unused
Selling at half price; many are funny words which will leave you amused

    Donald, I liked your poem. Very creative and full of humor. I'll buy your left over funny words! You might like my poem "Playing with Words" :)

    How rewarding it is to hear that you have read almost all that I have posted! I've only been here such a short time and you honor me in this way! Thank you. I joined for the specific reason to share my poetry with others. That makes me happy. Someone invited me to join a contest. I don't remember who. But I am not professional poet. I don't know most of the types, except rhymes and free verse. I just write what I feel. I wouldn't stand a chance against other poets who know what they are doing.

    This is the plight of the poet who can't find a poem. It has happened to me. Thank you for your comments on The Basement Room. Linda
