“Buv, the Woopid Wowwer” is my poem inspired by today’s Valentine Abstract Poem Writing Exercise. I used the words “love,” “flower” and “Cupid”. I’m sure you can figure out the three words I came up with for each of those to write this poem:
Buv, the Woopid Wowwer
by Patricia Spork
Buv loved a flower named Cupid,
So his heart flipped over in woopid;
But Cupid, not seeking his love,
Gave her tiny heart to Big Nuv.
But Big Nuv sought only sun’s power,
So Cupid’s fragrance did sour;
And her stalk, covered in zuv,
Became unsightly…even to Buv.
Yet grown as medicinal Wowwer,
Buv dropped off his petals in bow-er;
They curled up – a comforting dupid -
Causing Cupid to bloom so shupid!
Now Buv grows entwined with Cupid,
Both vined in perennial woopid;
And Big Nuv, who only sought power,
Died a lone annual…drowned by a shower.

Okay, maybe not that abstract, but it works, and to me, it’s so cute. LOL!
