Poetry Magnum Opus

An Anagram Poem (for Tink)

(drifting around Tinker's excellent archive I was inspired to try one of these, emphasise try)


How to live cheap he thought

So a single peach he bought

It's worth a coin's throw I trow

Thought he, an archaic wonk

was he to know so old a word

and show his hows and whys

Yet a life's short and time flies.

A peach of a piece
the poet won't cease
to throw out words
like wonk for the nerds
We know life's pace
flies in the face
of the hows of the earth
and despite our worth
we all work cheap.

Sorry, sorry, sooooo bad but the devil made me do it.....This is what happens when I haven't written in a long time.

Frank, Thanks for the Anagram, I really missed you while you were on hiatus. I guess I have been taking a little break lately too but I still check in and read.

Gee thanks Tink for the response and the link, a proud moment. Au contraire your riposte poem's a fine one, Linda (peapod) PM'd me on PC by the way said where were you? Frank

These poems should be combined into a single piece, as they go so well together!

Drown your sorrows in drink, by all means, but the real sorrows can swim
