Autumning with Acerbity
No Crime in Rhymin’ Oct — Nov 2020
Esteemed Fellow Punsters and Rhymologists!
It’s become an NCiR’ tradition — on the back of this digest every two months or so — for me to give a shout-out to those poems that achieve the coveted Medium curation status.
Apparently this is no longer possible, as curation has gone underground and out of sight. Let me note, instead, the three highest-viewed submissions of this period, which I was glad to see all came from first-time contributors: Cringeworthy and Words With Friends by Cocoa, and Daniele’s How to Write a Sonnet.
Welcome to our new contributing writers: Daniele Ihns (#118), Cocoa Griot (#119), Matthew Kenneth Gray (#120), Kane S (#121), Speaking Fiction To Power (#122), antoinette nevitt (#123), Jay Krasnow (#124)
And of course, a heartfelt thanks to our returning writers as well. Here is everything we published these past two months:
The White Van Man
An unfair, reductionist and elitist description of the hard-working, white, middle age, British male in a Mercedes…
She Loves Truckin’
She answered a Drivers Wanted ad They said she’d be haulin’ a big rig She’d see all parts of the country And it…
6 Rhyming Haikus about being stuck inside
I know that Haiku poems typically don’t rhyme but what the hell?
