Poem a day challenge...sestina

Day 28 Prompt: sestina or an anti sestina poem
- Guess which one I chose!
(sestina is a form of poetry, highly formatted and mathematically challenging :) )

Mercy Please

It's getting late
I have a poem to write
a sestina of all things
let me tell you Robert
I don't think so
in fact it's a no go
I've read what it takes
to write one of these
there isn't a hope no
none what so ever
not today or tomorrow
maybe never
I'm a free loving woman
free verse that is
no rules or complicated
format in me
if it needs an excel sheet
it's beyond my capability
seriously there is not a
hope that I will do this
not today or tomorrow
maybe never




  1. I like poems about not writing poems.

  2. Certainly not the sestina which I have been playing with for years and never successfully concluded.

    Free the words from the structured verse!!!
