Prompt 187: Amuse

Thanks to Mad Kane of Mad Kane's Humor Blog for this week's prompt, amuse. Here is her blog post and delightful poetic offering:

One of my favorite poetry prompt sites, One Single Impression, has asked its poet-participants to propose word prompts for upcoming editions. I suggested the word “amuse,” which will be used next week, starting September 25th. Here’s a limerick and haiku I wrote for the occasion:

Amusing Verse … I Hope
By Madeleine Begun Kane

I try to amuse when I write,
In my quest to pen verse that has bite.
But sometimes my muse
Lets me down. Yes j’accuse!
I suspect that it does it for spite.

Poetry prompt sites
inspire, amuse, bring friends,
awaken muses.
