A Matter Of Fact (#NaPoWriMo Day 30)

#NaPoWriMo, Other Poetry Add comments


On this, the last day of NaPoWriMo 2018, I wrote three jaunty verses to fulfil the prompt of: “write a poem that engages with a strange and fascinating fact” 😉


In Sweden it’s illegal

To vote for Donald Duck

(So if you’re slightly quackers,

I guess you’re out of luck)


‘Robot’ is a Slavic word

For ‘slave labour’ – it’s true!

(So think of this the next time

Your Roombas suck crumbs for you)


And octopus intelligence

Is crafty and profound,

They’ll sneak onto a fishing boat

Munch crabs without a sound….



I hope you have enjoyed my journey through my first national poetry month – it’s been fun coming up with pieces every day!
