Micro Poem - (No.8) Five Times A Day

Updated on September 29, 2016
Jodah profile image

John values the use of humour and enjoys writing and reading limericks and jokes. He is a fan of Monty Python, Mr Bean, Black Books etc.

Warning, contains adult themes!

At one time I was publishing these micro-poems at a rate of one a month. They were popular with my followers and challenging but fun to write, however the word count doesn't measure up to HubPage requirements and they don't tend to generate regular traffic. For this reason I stop writing new ones as I have to keep updating them to keep them featured.

I still think it's worth doing that as they are a little different to anything else I have read on HubPages and may still have an audience.

Five Times A Day

by John Hansen © 2013


What's that you say?

You want it how much,

Five times a day?

This ain't no rabbit hutch.


I love you dearly,

But I don't think I can.

No, not really,

I'm not Superman.


Maybe I could pop a pill,

But is that the answer?

It takes desire and will,

To be a sweet romancer.


I think even billybuc,

Would simply say,

"I wish you luck,

But five times a day?"


"I'll give it my best shot", I'd say.

But you still won't pay my wages,

Despite writing five poems a day,

For you, my dear Hub Pages.
