Today's NaPoMo challenge is to write a poem about curtains of at least 8 lines, some of which contain internal rhymes :>o


Curtain call

Our favourite feature of the curtains isn't shade or shape
or fabric, colour, bunchy bits, sophisticated drape,
it is the gripping, never slipping, objects on one side,
the cheerful cling-on koala toys, in which we take most pride.

The cling-on koalas might not find a place at Ideal Home,
they're all quite old and faded and they're not made out of chrome,
but how folks gasp to see them grasp the curtains in their paws;
and frequently we celebrate the k's with wild applause.
