Parroty – #NaPoWriMo23 – Day 12

#NaPoWriMo23, Random poetry Add comments


“Today, I challenge you to write a poem that addresses itself or some aspect of its self” [from here]

So, for Day 12 I wrote the first thing that popped into my head:


Pretty poem

Preeee-tty  poem

Whatcha doin’ doin’ doin’,


Hugo huffed hugely

Hugo! Hugo!

Pretty poetry parrot

Pray pretty prickly proud prude.

No one understands you!

Do you even care?

Huffy, huffy, Hugo

Huffy, fluffy, scruffy, Hugo

Want a sunflower seed?

Silly sausage, soppy silly sausage

Give us a silly song.

You want out your cage?

Hello Hugo,

Hello, hello,

Fluffy fellow.

Scruffy fluffy.

Where’ve you gone?


Nonsense, eh?! See what too much decluttering and having the kids about for over a week has done to me?!

I’m even having to backdate this post (and probably my offering for Day 13…) as I am struggling to manage my days properly over here.   Never mind, I always miss everyone when we get back into the school routines, so a little tardiness against the backdrop of more boy cuddles and chat is not a calamity really 😉

Back soon…!
