Trifecta Writing Challenge #67: Rat Race
RAT RACE… A Nursery Rhyme in 33 words
Life becomes struggle, To juggle these days. How did it happen, I’ve entered a maze.
They say pills have helped, Ones that they gave. I’m really not sure, If I will be saved.
I wanted to write something in 33 words, since I missed the recent Trifextra. I decided to try a poem. After I wrote it, I didn’t know what form it was, so I consulted the Noted Scandinavian Poet, Björn Rudberg (who nosed out ‘you know who’, to claim first post this time). He said it reminded him of a nursery rhyme format, and that was good enough for me… I liked it. Björn also gave me a few other tips. If you liked it… Thank you. If you didn’t… Blame Björn.
