Set Course #DVersePoets #Quadrille

Always just sort of truly set

these ways wobble wonderfully,

or is it woefully?

Uncertain if they’re certain

about the shape

of the course

decided upon,

waited upon,

debated upon.

This is what has been done.

So far…

for now…

Not quite as pictured.


A very quick poem before I head to bed tonight. It was my first night back on the judo mat, so I’ve only just got home, but I didn’t want to miss the Quadrille night. Can’t wait to read the others tomorrow.

(P.S, I almost think this might count as a political poem… huh… not really done one of those before.)

  1. Interesting–it could be political, but I like that it’s open to interpretation. I like the way the subject of the poem waffles about so, or is if wiffles, wobbles? 😉

  2. Glenn A. Buttkus says

    Yes, it is very much a political poem, as well as messaging about obstinance, gaslighting and partisan effects.

  3. Beverly Crawford says

    You’ve set an interesting course, to say the least, somewhat like that of our noble(?) leader!

  4. Rob Kistner says

    It is likely never perfect Carol, but it is always an adventure.

Please take the time to tell me what you think, I love receiving feedback. :)
