In a fit of utter madness, the Write on Mamas decided to enter the A-Z Blog Challenge once again in April. This is when you post on a different letter of the alphabet on each day of April. We managed to get 26 members of our group to post last year and are doing it again this year. As I said, complete insanity! But it was also so much fun and it really helped and to pull us together as a group, especially for those members who live further away.
In the few days leading up to April, we thought it might to nice to showcase a few of the most popular posts from last year’s Challenge. The final blog from last year we are showcasing is a poem from Claire Hennessy, which also has the added feature of listening to her read it in her British accent!
A British divorcee called Claire
Sent an email one night for a dare
To her first love at school
Who’d been horny and cool
And no man since then could compare.
When they first met he had a nickname
She wondered if it would be the same
He quickly replied
Bursting with pride
He was still known as Bug, he proclaimed.
The years apart had been more than thirty
But they found that they both were still flirty
She’d forgotten that Bug
Was not like a slug
Coz when it came to romance he was dirty.
Two years later in a town by the sea
He declared his love and proposed on one knee
She jumped up and down
With the ring he had found
And with no thought accepted with glee.
From her family it was very hard to part
But she needed to follow her heart
To live in the sun
Sounded plenty of fun
Bug had always been Right From The Start.
