NaPoWriMo day 15

Halfway there! Today’s prompt is to write a poem in terza rima which is a chained rhyme scheme. The first stanza in ABA, the next is BCB, a third is CDC and so on.

 

The Sergeant had once blown his top

And recruits were scattered wide

For fall he did over a discarded mop

 

The Sergeant, though flesh untouched, had rather hurt his pride

But amongst his men, no one took blame

Despite how hard he tried

 

He beasted them as was his fame

Though day and night did pass

Till they tried the sergeant tame

 

And said – “You touched it last!”
