Prunes -- a food poem

After a few weeks where I've missed Poetry Friday entirely (and here are this week's collected links, courtesy of poetry-writing/poetry-loving Elaine), I'm so happy to be blogging on the right day that I'm posting a poem that I hope will truly move you all....

Gregory K.

Eat a prune
And very soon
You will take
A bathroom break.

Eat a raisin.
It's so small
You may not have
To go at all.

You've been rounded up for Poetry Friday. The roundup will be at Blue Rose Girls this week.

Kelly said...

Great poem, Greg. And yours is excellent too, Elaine.

Welcome back to PF, Greg. Elaine has the round up.

Terry P. said...

Too funny, Greg. I love the simplicity!

I prefer
to drink some tea
Though sure enough
I have to pee.

Poet, writer
Kidlit hotty,
Gregory K
Shares thoughts on potty.

(now you know why I don't write poetry.)

Greg Pincus said...

Three poetic replies? Hmmm....

Note to self:
If folks get bored,
Potty poems strike a chord.

Thanks, for the notes, y'all (and for the roundup, Elaine).

Now I know
The special ingredient
That makes you go.

Okay, so I'm not a poet. Funny stuff, Greg.
