LONDON UK


Two weeks! That’s how much poeming we’re about to complete. Big deal. For today’s prompt, pick a state (or province, territory, etc.), make it the title of your poem, and then, write your poem. A few possibilities include New York, California, Ontario, Bavaria, and Champagne. It goes without saying, but I’ll say it anyway: Feel free to bend this in any direction you wish.

LONDON UK


by John Yeo

We’d decided to explore London Town
Following the familiar tourist trail
Steeped in history a jewel in the crown.

The Infamous Tower brought on a frown
Torture and death in the hopeless jail
We’d decided to explore London Town.

The Houses of Parliament, laws laid down,
Buckingham Palace will never grow stale
Steeped in history a jewel in the crown.

High above, the London Eye turns around
Circling to add wonder to the cities portrayal
We’d decided to explore London Town.

Theatre and Art galleries, Museums abound.
London’s exciting vibrancy will never stale
Steeped in history a jewel in the crown.

Hyde Park, Madame Tussaud’s high renown
Horseguards and Westminster never fail
We’d decided to explore London Town.
Steeped in history a jewel in the crown.
