Imperfection is the theme for Day 5 of the #introtopoetry course from WordPress.  The suggested form is the limerick.

Having published my Day 4 poem and getting more likes on it than total visits to my blog, I was feeling rather annoyed.  My limerick (as members of the Church of England will notice immediately) takes some inspiration from the General Confession.  This prayer is said at services from the Book of Common Prayer.  Christians are taught to acknowledge their wrongdoing and to forgive those who have done wrong to them.

Liking a post from the Reader is useful if you have read it and clicked away. 🙂

There was a keen blogger called Sue,
Who posted more than she ought to do.
She hated spam likes:
“You can get on your bikes!”
And denounced what they ought not to do.

The prompt for the third day of the Poetry U course from WordPress is Friend.  The suggested form is an acrostic.

Have you visited my other blogs Sue’s Trifles and Sue’s Words and Pictures?


Forever is a long time for friendships to go on;
Relationships wax and wane.
I try to be a friend to almost everyone.
Enemies can be such a drain.
Now there is a friend we cannot see:
Do you know he died and lives for you and me?
