A Poem-"The Over 50's Forum"
I decided to write a poem for you mob,its different to other poems here because I designed it to be a group exercise,so I have started it with 3 verses,you can feel the rhyme and metre of the poem by my verses,I will explain a poems structure in a seperate thread,I will explain rhyme and metre and what a "foot" is,I want everyone here,every member if they want to,or if they can, to write one verse each,and only one verse each,anyone writes more than one verse i will ask admin to delete it,so lets be fair,just follow my flow or beat,keep it at 8 lines per verse,its very easy,one verse each,no more,no less, easy to do,will keep your minds occupied, so start writing please.
THE OVER 50's FORUM
Well I joined an English forum,
Over 50's was it's name,it was
loaded with old fossil's,most of
whom were getting lame.
For old age had swooped upon
them,and it took em by suprise'
and they needed a new outlook
for their imminent demise!
There are lots of members in here,
some are good and some are bad,
for this secret world,the internet,
is a refuge when the're sad.
But it can't always be gloomy,
sometimes clouds,and then blue
skies,so they type out posts at
breakneck speed,in anonymous
But who are these people really?
I don't know,and neither you,they
have names that sound outlandish,
but they really sound untrue,but it
fills an empty vacant space,for life
just seems so glum,so they type
and post whilst sitting down on
old bones cold and numb!
