WATCHING TELEVISION

For today’s prompt, write a license poem. There are many different licenses available to people. Fishing license, driver’s license, license to plate, license to kill, and marriage license. Poem doesn’t have to be about the license, but it could mention a license, happen at a licensing office, or well, use your poetic license.

WATCHING TELEVISION


by John Yeo

‘Sorry Sir you can’t do that without a license!’
I found the statement rather irrelevant.
‘What have you got to say in your defence?’

I searched his face for inward malevolence.
He repeated his words with authoritative intent.
‘Sorry Sir you can’t do that without a license!’

It stretched the bounds of common sense
Although I suspect the question was well meant.
‘What have you got to say in your defence?’

I have to admit his title gave little offence;
His pompous attitude showed no relent.
‘Sorry Sir you can’t do that without a license!’

I put his question down to inexperience
His total asinine repetition clearly evident.
‘What have you got to say in your defence?’

I shuddered at his jumped-up perseverance
Which gave me cause for much merriment;
‘Sorry Sir you can’t do that without a license!’
‘What have you got to say in your defence?’
