in the pink inkpot
she opted not to drop
the pen tip to the top
instead, pointed
a pin into a pint
of knotted pinto beans
calculating pi ’til
the poi get eaten by the pit
and the silly pig snorts “oink”
while nipped during a deep kip

One Single Impression – Prompt 199: Inkpot

What I did to write this was go to         –  Scrabble Word Finder  Where they had a list of the anagrammed words made of Inkpot, and I just messed with the words to get this silly poem.

About zongrik

For those of you who do not know the handle "zongrik," that would be Bat-Ami Gordin. Most people call me "Tammy." Bat-Ami means "daughter of my nation" in Hebrew. It's a heavy name to carry around. I answer to either name. I also answer to "mama." Some Basic Things about me: Animal lover, mom, poet/writer, dramatic soprano, photographer, teacher/tutor, CERT/Technician and, oh yeah, aerospace engineer. I consider myself "The Astro-Poet." To learn more about the origins of the word "zongrik" see whats-a-zongrik?
