Not Just My Verse, Your Two Two Too


Game 5 – Season 1

01 July 2019

Not Just My Verse, Your Two Two Too! Created by Rory of A Guy Called Bloke and K9 Doodlepip! Please do remember to include the ping back, otherwise l lose track of the verse and your additions, cheers.

NB: If the poem goes unanswered from a Tagged Blogger for more than three days, l will collect it back and re-tag a new writer.

Welcome to ….

Not Just My Verse, Your Two Two Too! 

I will choose a topic, write four lines of Rhyming Verse then l will tag one of my readers who will in turn add four lines of Rhyming Verse to my mine and Tag one of their own readers, and then it is a case of wash rinse repeat and let’s see how far our topic goes in so far as a Rhyme?

Once the poem [Verse] leaves my blog, the next blogger along can take it where ever they want with regards their own four line verse but always staying on topic.

Got it?

The day is as long, as the night is young,
Four more lines of verse, to make another rhyme,
What topic shall we do to have some fun..
This time?

Ooooh l know …


Ode To The Insomniac!

Why do evade me so? It makes for no sense,
In truth, to do so unkindly and unwarranted, is nonsense!
I have tried counting all sorts, from stars to wide eyed sheep!
Yet still you , yes you decline me shut eye and valuable sleep!

 Jay-lin of The Wonderful and Wacky World of one Single Mum

Tossing and turning pulling blankets near,
What is that noise that I hear?
It is not the sandman come for me,
Why won’t you let me sleep dear?    

Gary of Bereaved Single Dad

Countless late night biscuits and black coffee,
Walking around like a spaced out zombie,
Listening to Cohen and Floyd on endless loop,
Convincing myself that no sleep is common in my age group.

Lorraine of Blind Wilderness

I toss and I turn
Oh when will I learn
That sleep is at bay
On an Away Day

Di of Pensitivity 101

The stars are so bright at this time of night,
I look forward to slumbering deep,
As I close my tired eyes, what a surprise,
The brain wakes and I can’t get to sleep!

Teresa of The Haunted Wordsmith

The shadows creep along the wall
like predators waiting for me to fall.
My pillow–my shield; flashlight–my sword,
The most dangerous thing is a mind that’s bored.

Fandango of This, That and The Other

Wide awake, I turn and look at my clock to see
That it’s three a.m. and I have to get up to pee
Back in bed I close my eyes, then check my clock once more.
Oh my God, it’s not even four!

Jim Adams New Epic Author

How do you sleep
Secrets I will keep
If I get home before daylight
I just might get some sleep tonight,

Gabriela M of Short Prose is next!

    1. Well l know you are, l know Suze doesn’t suffer with insonnia but she cannot always get quality sleep. i suffer amnd have suffered with insomnia all of my life and even now, l am struggling to keep and maintain a heaklthy sleeping regime.

      Strangely enough l learned recently there is an actual reason for my problem and it is all to do with Melatonin, which affects people with autism more. I never knew that but Suze is currently studying autism and read it.

      Melatonin is naturally produced by the body in the large majority of people, l produce it as well. What it does is help to ‘regulate’ the sleep wake cycle, but l don’t produce enough of it naturally and this affects my sleep pattern.

      Maybe melatonin is also responsible for your irregular sleep patterns?

      1. Lot of people take melatonin for sleeping. It’s s sort of natural remedy. You can give it a try.

    1. Hey Jay-lyn l will check it out now, WP PB’s have been funny for a while now, currently l am having to try and find loads of lost comments that when l log in are not there, and then they just all appear at once ha! Go figure that 🙂

  1. I toss and I turn
