This should set poetry back 1,000 years...but you know me...I'm a rebel and gotta do my thang...Kacee

Used to be a hot tomato
Guys wanted me on their arm
Now I'm just a couch potato

Never was as smart as Plato
My smile was full of charm
Used to be a hot tomato

Rid myself of that Scorpio
Thought I'd buy a chicken farm
Now I'm just a couch potato

Years ago when no meant no
Guys never did me harm
Used to be a hot tomato

When nature calls ya gotta go
Having trouble keeping warm
Now I'm just a couch potato

Listening to oldies on the radio
Forgetting to set my alarm
Used to be a hot tomato
Now I'm just a couch potato

Kacee Huggs

This is very cool. I just noticed your other (dada) piece. Sorry I didn't get to it sooner. I am distracted these days with limited time like everyone else it seems. I am going to go check it out right now. Again, I like this piece here very much.

oh, Kacee! the you-ness of this is resounding! this was an absolute hoot, and I applaud anyone brave enough to attempt the villanelle challenge... God knows I found it difficult enough. you make it look so easy! and itís funny too.

wonderful villanelle lesson
Hey Kacee - this villanelle of yours is one of the ones I chose when I posted my poetry formula lesson on this style. I think it's a fabulous example of how cleanly crisp and witty a villanelle can be!
