December Dailies – Day 13 – Golden Shovel

Jane requested this one too… the Golden Shovel (Click here to learn more). It is a poem in which you borrow several words and use them at the ends of your new lines. If you read the last word(s) of my lines they will make up a portion of Billy Collins poem, Royal Aristocrat, a poem about a typewriter. I cheated a bit and used more than one of BC’s words at the end of a few of my lines. but overall I think I met the spirit of the poem. Additionally, I really don’t like this poem. I would start again, but as it is now 10:25pm, I don;t want to spend another hour working on this… so… If you also dislike the poem, please feel free to revise it in the comments. Cheers!
