Strength (A Decima)

poetrybymich💛💥💫 its day 3 of Na/GloPoWriMo Scavenger Hunt. Let’s write a “Decima Poem” on the theme of muscular strenght ..

Strength (A Decima)

your muscular built is taken as strength
the power of your arms could lift and hold
anything because you are strong and bold
you are without a doubt in perfect length
any man would be envious ’till the end
what makes you weak what makes you tweak a bit
no one knows nobody could tell what’s it
’til that fateful night i took off and snatched
the bandage then you screamed like you were botched
what makes you weak i know in just a wink

NaPoWriMo Scavenger Hunt #3

Let’s look at the poetic form known as decima. There are various versions of it, but we’ll start with the basic- It is a 10-liner in the following rhyme pattern:

A
