can or cant?

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 could I write a novel
about any iconic game?
embellish it with filler
espy a Booker in the frame?

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 could I write a novel
pad it out with conceit?
turn it into a thriller
have you glued to your seat?

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 could I write a novel
in such a novel way
that football would be central
or turned into a play?

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 could I write a novel
festooned with florid prose?
where do authors find the time?
God only knows!

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 could I write a novel?
nay…

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 it’s poetry because
no boring filler is required
just capture the passion and the feeling
and the dreams thus inspired

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 poetry because
the rhythm and the rhyme
gets straight to the point
and scores every time

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 poetry because
it certainly hits the mark for me
be it canto, ode or sonnet
it grips …..
from glimpse of goal to glee!
