Outhouse Blues

Ronovan Décima Poetry Challenge #21
“Tip” In D rhyme line

On the prairie stood the small shed
Fragrant outpost now left alone.
Special building, to some a throne
Sanctuary behind homestead.

Crescent moon, all that need be said!
Sear and Roebuck, the weekly news,
Printed daydreams, crumpled views,
Alley Oop, weekly comics strips,
And contemplation – farmhouse tips.
Harkens back to old Outhouse Blues.

The style has a rhyming pattern of abbaaccddc. Sometimes you break the stanza up in abba/accddc.
The abba/accddc requires either a period or semicolon after the fourth line break.

Décima 8/4/2020

Day after day the clear well water flow,
Down through a pipe to old rusted tin trough.
That farms water pump cycles on and off,
As the windmill turns and prairie breeze blow.
Pumping cold water from steel shaft below,
That’s drilled two hundred feet through sand and rock,
Bringing precious water for farm and stock.
The windmill blades keep turning round and round,
Driving old gears whose iron teeth have been ground,
Rusted old bearings that sing round the clock.

In the year two thousand nineteen
Exotic meat sold in Wuhan.
Special food to debut in
A little rice with sweet green bean.
Wish it included a vaccine.
Three months later the problem grows,
Must shut it down leaders propose.
They thought first it was endemic,
Now world suffers in a pandemic.
When it will end nobody knows!

Out on the farm a dog and cat
No finer pals you’ll ever find.
Then the dog barked, you’re not my kind
How could the news be worse than that?

The chicken called and so did the rat
It turns out now you’re not canine.
Then I’m told it seems you’re feline!
You never bark, you say meow
Still we are friends I will allow
I don’t care what others opine.
