Thanks to Janus’s incredibly good taste, it appears I am in a position to set the theme for November’s Pome Comp.
Since Mrs FEEG and I will be visiting our son and daughter-in-law in Washington, for Thanksgiving, I think a good theme for a poem would be Giving Thanks.
Satire and sarcasm would be welcome, as in:
Thanks for making me laugh,
Thanks for making me barf,
You MPs are all the same
Buggering round at the Politics Game!
However, equally welcome would be sincere expressions of thanks as in:
Thank you so very much, Mum
When I was young, you wiped my bum
Now you are old and grey
I want to help you every day!
I sincerely hope the standard will be higher than this doggerel, but I would encourage all and sundry to get their creative thinking caps on. If not, I will be nagging all and sundry mercilessly!
Note that, because of the aforementioned trip, the deadline will be midnight on December 3rd.
