Learn the Ropes Folk


We got rich folk and thin folk, town folk and plain folk

There’s sick folk and grim folk and those that are broke folk

And those that like to sing folk their lullabies to wee folk

Behold masters of what’s spoke folk cuz life’s not a joke folk

We gotta raise our young folk to love their fellow kinfolk


This week the event is to Write a story or poem of 5 Lines or Less using the word kinfolk. Please drop by and join the challenge at Patricia’s Place

    You have me an idea to repeat one word several times as a theme for a poem. Thank you.

      I am delighted you enjoyed it. I sing all of my poems to myself as I like them to be rhythmic.
