Blank Verse

Written by: Jack Ellison



This is my first attempt at blank verse Don't expect a lot of content It's a blank verse for goodness sakes So the dialogue will be absent How much of a clue do you really need The verse is supposed to be blank Do I really need to explain it any further Don't wanna sound like a crank Some may find this a little ridiculous Trying something so bizarre A poem that doesn't contain any words Devoid of ABCs and Rs I'm always game to try something new It's my very first poem about nothing Instead of a bunch of silly old verses Bout lovemaking and passionate hugging So what do you think of my first attempt Did it make any sense to you If it did, then my efforts were a total failure So it's back to the quatrains, Magoo! © Jack Ellison 2013
