Mischief


Oblivious she seems to me
in spite of all my manly charm.
How she resists, I just can't see.
Oblivious she seems to me.
So now a prankster I will be.
At least, I'll cause her great alarm!
Oblivious she seems to me
in spite of all my manly charm.

This poem WAS a triolet,
but I just didn’t want to quit.
She wants some dull, malnourished guy
instead of ME. I can’t see why.

***********************

I know the dolt is flexing there,
with muscles bigger than his brain.
A ring from him I'll never wear.
I know the dolt is flexing there.
Encourage him, I wouldn't dare.
From wooing me, he must refrain.
I know the dolt is flexing there,
with muscles bigger than his brain.

I said “NO” when he asked me out.
You should’ve seen the big oaf pout!

Oops! That’s ten lines. I should’ve quit
with eight. This WAS a triolet.


Triolet--I added four lines to each stanza.

Congratulations Janice, you have scored the one and only second place in my Mischief contest! I think this is absolutely brilliant, bringing the triolet to life. I love the way you’ve told both sides of the story, and that line “I know the dolt is flexing there” will stay with me for a long time!
