Accidental Love #terriblepoetry

Chel Owens is back on her terrible poetry schtick with accidental love.

This is more accidental poetry…

She elbowed my nose

Trying to make sourdough.

It broke. My nose, that is.

‘It’s just a dent…’

An accident

She took the car

To test her new glasses.

‘The tree came out of nowhere.

It’s a little bent.’

An accibent

The nice man with the moustache

Sold her a shiny bond

And cleared us out.

‘Every flaming cent.’

An accicent

We got it back on insurance.

She lent it to her brother

To start a platypus farm

In Adelaide

With a former Love Island contestant

Called Bouncy.

They don’t return her calls.

An accilent

I love her for her baking, her resilience, her openness and her family loyalty.

They say I’m mental.

I say it’s an accimental love.

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.

    Bravo, TG; much too clever wordplay to be the worst.
