As life returns to normal, post-COVID infection, I thought it might be an idea to write some longer form poems for the next 30 days, to get me back into the business of routine. Fortunately, Twitter has provided an event for that: #NaPoWriMo, which is part of #NationalPoetryMonth.

#Day12 was written fast and dirty, in response to this Tweet. Sometimes, that’s how this works for me 😀

Thank you for taking the time to read, and please comment if you like this 😀

White Wing (for Jack Monroe)
(after Jimmy Hendrix)

Now they’re taking them to task
with the sharpest mind that knows each ask
kitchen hack recipes
creating good food, not magic
but truth, they always write about:
downing the white wings...
when fools do their best to hunt
ten thousand recipes will better, us -
idiots don’t see, bigger picture
anything white wants, what gammon stakes
not like us;

jog on white wings
yeah, yeah, yeah
we don’t want you here…
