Lai Ability

Lai Ability

I must admit, my
Lai ability

is nil

no agility
no facility

but still

I gave it a try
and I have to say

Ah well……

 

Ah, well……the challenge over at dVerse is to write a lai or a lai nouveau.  I read the rules for the lai nouveau and they are so complicated I am afraid I might vanish up my own arse if I tried one….so here’s another lai…(re the rhymes, I have tried to keep the same vowel sound in the couplet end rhymes).

 

Skunk

struts across the lawn
in the early dawn

tail high

sphincter primed, that gland
full of mercaptan

stands by

an insurance plan,
deterrent, demand…..

supply.

    I find the rules complicated as well for the lai nouveau. I like the humor in these lais. Especially “Lai Ability”. Good description of the skunk’s “insurance plan”.
