Poetry Break: Some More One-Line Poems

"Grime and Punishment"

Here are three new one-liners:


Sage born, he could recall no flair of youth.

Galactic Hitchhiker's Guide

A well-thumbed guide leading nowhere at all.


The GPS knows badder than you do!

Perhaps I've engendered a new genre of poetry . . .

These are excellent. Don Tinsley, who we know from Emanations, has also been writing one line poems.

No... So far emerging as spontaneous bon mots on facebook.

Does he call them one-line poems?

Anyway, I try for a single iambic pentameter line with self-referential properties that effectively double the line and a title that interacts with the line, all of these working together to produce a brief, but interesting reading.

But you probably knew that already.
