Poetry 365 Challenge: A Poem A Day - 2015

I started this on Inkvite, then Wattpad, now I'm trying out Movellas!

There is no real prize as such, just the adventure of expression, and bettering ourselves as writers.

I'm no poetry expert but used to enjoy writing poems in school. So thought this could be fun and a good way of improving writing skills.

There are no major rules, you can write in any style of poetry you like, as long and short as you like.

I will set set various topics or themes, but again, you can follow your own path if they don't appeal to you.

For example, I think the first poem we write should be on the theme of "New Year's Resolutions" posted on 1st Jan 2015.

I will post the current theme at the top of this page regularly.

Hope you guys like this idea please leave comments letting me know if you support it.

Please share on social media and with your followers if you feel so inclined.

I'm going to use the tag 365 in this so we can find each other's work.

Note: my poems are only semi-biographical!

52. 21st Feb: First World Problems

Date: Saturday 21st February 2015

Style: Rhyming Couplets

Title: First World Problems

First world problems

Like paying the bills and the rent

When some people are homeless

Without help from the state, be content!

So, Starbucks got your order wrong

And daddy won't buy you a car

But it looks like you'll pass your media degree

One day you'll be a star!

So, your WiFi went down for an hour

And as you washed your shower went cold

Please don't tell me you're starving!

How could you be so selfishly bold?

Corked white wine for a white whiner

Politically incorrect, but some truth

Shouldn't it be Developed World Problems?

'What you can say,' changes for the youth

But that's another First World Problem!
