Suited Bananaman – #NaPoWriMo23 – Day 4

Hiya 😊

“Today, let’s try writing triolets. A triolet is an eight-line poem. All the lines are in iambic tetrameter (for a total of eight syllables per line), and the first, fourth, and seventh lines are identical, as are the second and final lines. This means that the poem begins and ends with the same couplet. Beyond this, there is a tight rhyme scheme (helped along by the repetition of lines) — ABaAabAB.” [From here on the NaPo site]

This year’s prompts are all ones that have popped up in other years.  I last wrote a poem in this style about Covid lockdown back in 2020. I decided to pick a pic from Pixabay and write my triolet from there 😉


Get back! Don’t move! I have some fruit!

Potassium explodes, you know!

Fill this bag now with all your loot –

Get BACK! DON’T move! I have some FRUIT!!! –

Throw in some choc’late bars to boot.

Get off!  I’m not ready to goooo…

Get baaaack…don’t moooove…I have some fruit?



That’ll do me, I think!


See you soon for Day 5 😊
