That Darn Ball

This is Day 4 of the 2017 edition of the 20 Days of Chill writing challenge hosted by P. J. at A ‘lil HooHaa. Today's prompt is I Found a Ball. Please visit the other participants for more stories.

I found a ball
upon a wall
I picked it up
I dropped my cup
I sat down
with a frown
upon a stump
with a thump
oh my dear
what's that I hear
are those bees
I scrape my knees
away I run
not having fun
may I say
it's not my day
I know it's lame
I lay the blame
upon that darn ball
that is all

  1. what a fun take on the theme, I like it.

    have a lovely day.

  2. And that ball
    was worn and weathered
    But at least,
    It wasn't tethered.

  3. I like it! Well done on this prompt!

    1. Thanks, I tend to go with the first thing that pops into mind, and when I read "I found a ball", that automatically said silly poem to me.

  4. OK, I grinned ear to ear as I read this! Fun, creative and so well written!!!! And the end took me back to my childhood days with Dr. Seuss. One of my favorite things you have written. :)

    1. Thanks Katherine. I'm glad you were grinning, that's what silly poems are supposed to do. :)
