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!

10. 10th Jan: Pet Peeves

Date: Saturday 10th January 2015

Style: Rhyming Couplets

Title: Pet Peeves

People who get in the lift when you're trying to get out

Friends who arrange to meet and stand you up, what's that about?

Passive aggressive colleagues who do very little work, and put work on you

Ineffectual management who allow bullying to happen, and support it too

The black heart of human nature and the lies we tell each other

The fact there is nobody you can really trust, including you're own mother

Mana vampires, attention seekers, martyrs, victims and fools

Liars, bullies, your Machiavellian heart, and moronic empty tools

There are a few pet peeves that bother me, when I care to engage

Generally I can't feel anything though, acting away, smiling on this stage
