The Bard's Wind - Acrostrain

Wind that I pass poisons air with one blow It stinks to the moon, stays 'til the morrow Nonchalant, nearly blue, frown on my brow Don't hold it; Farting is such sweet sorrow. 1 Notes: 1. A play on Shakespeare's famous line, Romeo and Juliet: Act 2, Scene 2. 2. While I do not wish to offend the fine sensibilities of our more delicate poets, most of us are familiar with the The Bard’s propensity to include references to farting in his plays. To name a few: Comedy of Errors: Scene I; Two Gentlemen of Verona: Scene IV; and Henry IV: Part I 24 October, 2015 Wind, Snow or Rain Acrostrain Sponsor: Jan Allison

Kim, as you can tell from the comments below, this has plenty of humor and fun. I like it, but I would change the last line and give Shakespeare the last laugh... Don't hold it; "Farting is such sweet sorrow". Great job!

A real "toot" of a poem that makes us take life a little less seriously and with a shrug after all it happens! Emile.

Okay, Kim. You could also keep the form requirements by inserting "it" before the semicolon, and eliminate the "a" ( Don't hold it; "Farting is such sweet sorrow". ) Still a great write, I just wanted to show you an alternative. Good luck in the contest.

Hello again Kim, I now see why we had matters in common - with particular regards to humor and wind. I shall keep wandering through to pick up tips. Best, Dennis
