Tale Weaver – #310 – Tired and Run Down – 14th January

Tired and rundown and a flat tyre

Storm the city with treason

Failure to fight fraud in branches

Try as I might can’t use my lyre

Complicit to silence even

A craven coward in patches

MorgueFile d866585ec4bfc939586ed483fa46745c

Hide for everything might backfire

Right not to go out, I’m wheezing

Tired of all, can’t go on matches

My Netflix contract just expire

Flat tyre on snowy season

Can’t even go to my classes

Indeed I’m so tired and rundown

Not just me if you look around*

  1. Wow that’s a complex poetry type. Mind you, I barely manage rhyming the last words of sentences to make something resemble poetry sometimes!

    You did a really good job with the prompt in this format. Well done!
