Five verse five days (5)

by Jem Croucher

5 of 5

I wrote a poem with five verses
one for every day
which I could publish on my blog
whilst I was away

The first one introduced the theme
(you read that yesterday)
but now you will be wondering
if substance I'll display

And never fear my readers
I'll not leave you feeling spent
as never will a poem
leave my pen without intent

The only caveat with this
is you read this through the week
to find out with the fifth stanza
that intent of which I speak

So here it is come Friday
no longer it's concealed
a ploy that kept you reading
til the purpose was revealed


[This poem was posted over five days on Jemverse and Poet’s Corner between Monday 22nd and Friday 26th May 2023 – one more verse per day, building up to five]

  1. I’ve been had–
    I read each one.
    But I don’t mind
    Since they were fun.
