Again this year I am writing a poem a day to celebrate National Poetry Month. It's my FOURTH YEAR in a ROW of writing a poem a day for the A to Z Challenge. My theme this year, is signs I've photographed and poems to go with them.
And If you get a chance, stop by Laura Shovin's Author Amok and read her clothing poetry by guest hosts. I hosted this past Wednesday with totus and skirts poems.
|Go here to visit more unbelievable U posts!|
Phew! I did it. I got a U poem. And it's an A-okay double limerick for the sign above:
(F) U T I L I TY
There once was a sign read: Utility -
It was really an act of futility;
There was no real Work,
Just made up by some clerk
So consumers would halt car mobility.
While waiting in line for the cars Ahead
The shop windows captured their gaze instead;
Seeing things they could buy,
That they used to drive by,
They decided to stay there and spend some bread.

There is a town nearby that did something similar with pedestrian speed bumps, slowing drivers down through town so that they would have time to "see the sights", so to speak. I won't mention any names.

But before that happens today is also Poetry Friday! You can find links to more things poetic if you head to .
