What Would You Rhyme With Orange? #thesincerestformofpoetry #booklaunch

The delightfully forthright and funny Chel Owens has kindly hosted a few Q&As about how I came to write one of the poems included in my new book. She hosts the A-mused poetry contest and is a generous and supportive blogger.

Please pop over to see her post and, while you’re there, see how I rise (erm, maybe) to the challenge of rhyming with orange…

Take it away Chelsea…

Oh and the rhyme was this…

Some say it is those on the fringe

On whose votes this election will hinge;

But despite all the chatter

It’s skin tone that’ll matter:

A grey face or one that’s orange.

About TanGental

My name is Geoff Le Pard. Once I was a lawyer; now I am a writer. I've published several books: a four book series following Harry Spittle as he grows from hapless student to hapless partner in a London law firm; four others in different genres; a book of poetry; four anthologies of short fiction; and a memoir of my mother. I have several more in the pipeline. I have been blogging regularly since 2014, on topic as diverse as: poetry based on famous poems; memories from my life; my garden; my dog; a whole variety of short fiction; my attempts at baking and food; travel and the consequent disasters; theatre, film and book reviews; and the occasional thought piece. Mostly it is whatever takes my fancy. I avoid politics, mostly, and religion, always. I don't mean to upset anyone but if I do, well, sorry and I suggest you go elsewhere. These are my thoughts and no one else is to blame. If you want to nab anything I post, please acknowledge where it came from.

    A good go at rhyming with orange, Geoff.
    I think I’d try to change the poem so Orange wasn’t at the end of a line! Or is that cheating?
    Will an orange face win the vote?
    Or will he just miss the boat?
    Coz those on the fringe
    The results will bring,
    Perhaps on the grey face they dote.
