Micro-Poem (No.4) Not a Happy Camper
Not A Happy Camper.
by John Hansen © 2013
My son is so excited
To camp is his desire.
I send him off to fetch some wood
So we can light the fire.
Night is falling quickly
The day is almost spent.
Before the light's completely gone
I have to pitch the tent.
I skim through the instructions
I've never camped before.
Struggling with the pegs and ropes
As rain begins to pour.
"I give up, it's just too hard
I'm freezing and I'm wet".
I let the tent fall to the ground,
And back in the car I get.

Writers are always striving to perfect their craft whether they be poets, novelists, technical writers, teachers etc. However, the truth is some of us just can't grasp the basics . This is for you.
I'm not sure how to describe this poem. It's just random words and contradictions.
Previously I wrote a poem called "If I Could Write a Love Poem." It was very well received and even selected to turn into a song that was recorded on an album by Tally Koren. This is the sequel.
