We Don't Need No Stinkin' Rules
Day one and I've broken them unknowingly
not having been concerned with them
not having even bothered to look for, or at them
in the first place.
Ha! I will make my own rules
the first of which is
there are no rules
make it up as you go is always
creative, it just naturally follows
No prompts needed
at least not yet
and if they are I will make them
And who's to say this is any less
valid? I've been following rules
all my life. Maybe it's about time
I let my inner outlaw out.
The townsfolk will have to run for cover
and the horses will whinny
and the tumbleweeds will tumble by
as my spurs clink
And I won't be afraid to be silly
So, I didn't read all the rules at the ReadWritePoem site when I signed up - and guess what, on the very first day - yesterday - I broke them. I didn't use their prompt and I didn't post my poem there or link to it. That makes me ineligible to be included in the anthology they're doing. Oh well. I'm still going to write a poem a day. But I'll write whatever however I want to. And ya know, it feels kinda good.
