A Very Well-Rounded Character

I’ve been horribly busy, so I’m stuck combining prompts.  At d’Verse Poets, the challenge is to develop a rounded character in the confines of a poem.  I’m also linking this to G-Man’s Friday Flash 55.


bouncing up, down, and all around

like a two-year-old with ADHD on acid;

the mouth of a sailor on leave

after six hours in the bar;

the pregnant belly reveals her

main interest and activity;

it’s my job to teach this girl

and prepare her for something more

than increasing the world’s population.
