Not Bowled Over – #NaPoWriMo22 – Day 15

#NaPoWriMo22, Other Poetry Add comments

Evenin’ All!


So, as usual, I went to the NaPo site for my prompt:

“This one may seem counter-intuitive, but today I’d like to challenge you to write a poem about something you have absolutely no interest in.” [Day Fifteen (]

This was quite hard because I spend a lot of my life Googling random things, most recently to write these poems!  I did think of something eventually, however.  (Apologies to my Dad, right off the bat…):-


Oh, I tolerate most things that are not cricket:

I have learned a bit about “footie”

And pensions, and art journals,

And computers, and quilling,

And (of course) David Bowie.


cricket ball and wickets

I’ve splashed about some watercolours

(Duelled my boys using hake brushes)

Collected needles of many kinds and

Lots of coloured crochet hooks.

I’ll dip into a wide range of magazines and books,

Research conditions and symptoms others have mentioned,

Listen to motivational speakers and brand-new podcasts,

Play many types of games.


I’m all for exploring things with my mind,

And learning about injustice, and which country is being nice to whom,

But Cricket is not my cup of tea, I’m afraid.

Howzat for a sticky wicket, eh?


I hope you’ve all had a lovely day today, getting to do things that you like knowing about 😊


It’s pretty late so I’m going to scoot, but I’m proud of myself for getting to the halfway point in another NaPo!  See you tomorrow!
