April PAD 5: Bloo

If you don’t know Blooregard Q. Kazoo,

I sigh ’cause I feel bad for you.

The prompter’s ode to a giggling sponge

Rob*, you inspired me to take the plunge

and tell you all about the animated friend

who stole my heart, though the show came to an end.

Blooregard Q. Kazoo was born of a thought, like me and you.

He’s loud and lazy and likes to concoct schemes.

He steals the limelight on every scene.

Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends is where he resides

with other animate thoughts of now grown children’s minds.

They live there with the hope to be adopted someday

by a snarky little brat who loves to play.

They all hope, except for Bloo, who waits each day at three

for his best friend and creator, Mac (who also created Cheese).

If Mac, for some reason, doesn’t come after school,

guess who’ll be up for adoption, according to the rule?

Because Bloo is like this month long poetic quest,

a daily meeting with our minds, if only in jest,

that consequently if neglected

he’s shunned, unprotected.

So share your rhymes! else we’ll never know your point of view;

just as before this little verse, you didn’t know Bloo.

That’s why my little blue obnoxious blob

gains a tribute here on this blog.


*Prompt: Two for Tuesday! (pick one, or write both)

  1. Write a goofy poem.
  2. Write a serious poem.

Today’s Writing Setting: At the kitchen table, after breakfast but before I washed up the dishes.
