Days 7: A Poem from Inna

I was asked to amuse 

These boards with a poem

So I started looking for clues 

And a theme that's not boring

 

Should I rap about the dishes

Stolen recently by a guest?

He did not do it, he wishes

His sadness immense

 

Not a good subject 

For this festive occasion

My brain is wrecked

From Idea invasions

 

How about a pretend host

Whos is actually a scammer

And is here to bost.

Let's attack his bad grammar!

 

I can trash ABB

That's a popular topic

So much I can bash

But that might by myopic

 

Instead let's all play

A game of some rhyme

Can we do it all day?

I bet you a dime!

 

I will start with a sentence

Please, you make another

My only condition:

Be nice to each other

 

I am going to start us off and lets see how long we can keep this going! Lets have fun!

 

I put decorations on my Holiday tree

My pet porcupine broke 7, that left me with three

No guest you may fear
You are a brave host
You are a poet like Shakespeare
You can accommodated even a ghost
without getting lost

 

To host or not to host
That is the question
If danger rises before you
All you need is prompt action

 

Can you remember, remember all guests name?
As they flow through your life
A thousand stays, you still call it a game
Even the cold spirits of ice
All your life, they are the echo of your past!

 

*The last stanza (last 5 lines it was a pun on a D. Purple lyric)

(Inna's line here): 

I put decorations on my Holiday tree

My pet porcupine broke 7, that left me with three

 

(My line, here): 

 

So I booked a trip for my porcupine and me

He is my 'emotional support' animal - 

So he travels for free.

@Rebecca181 hilarious. And would have been a joke but we all know might come true for a host somewhere.

Following on from Inna and Rebecca:

(My lines)

Travels for free you say with a grin

No need for a crate, he sits near my shin.

       but there lies the point, as my shin splints inflame...

for porcupine rubs my legs the wrong way...”

“Travels for free you say with a grin

       but there lies the point, as my shin splints inflame...

Mine: 

 

He leaves his quills in the sofa and under the drapes, 

He eats beds and tables, he breaks cups and plates,

He's not fully housebroken, in the wild he'd live in a tree, 

But you should feel lucky you get to host me!

 

For as a Superhost and guest there are none who compare

In the city of Chicago, all other hosts should beware

Me and my porcupine: we have no match!

If you need a place in the Windy City, choose Inna, natch!

 

I'll keep you laughing with my tales of excitement and woe

Of drunken housekeepers who just need to go

And cleaners who crash and wreck my stash of coffee

If something crazy's going to happen, it'll happen to me!
