Writing our way to victory, we left
Everything behind, each piece of our sordid stories splattered
All across the page.
Readers, ride along with us!
Everyone is invited
To share in the
Happiness and heck,
Even the heartaches, should you
Choose to cheer us on.
Hey, y’all, we
Actually did it — we
Made it through all 24 hours of
Poetry Marathon 2021!
I think this calls for a celebration!
No, on second thought, I believe I’ll just
Settle for a lengthy victory NAP!
