CIRCUS SCANDAL

Emails, flyers, posters, letters
and a lot more bumf
advertised circus parade
real elephant’s galumph.
But the beast was clumsy, shy
a masked and costumed humf.
Cheated crowd wants money back
not ringmaster’s “Harrumph.”

********************

David Harrison’s Word of the Month challenge for June is “Harrumph.” The poem above is the result of trying to fit  into one poem all the words with the end rhyme ‘umf’ contained in my little rhyming dictionary.

(And yes, bumf and humf are real words.)

Why don’t you write a “harrumph” poem? Mr. Harrison welcomes submissions of harrumph poems to the W.O.M. page of his blog (post in comments) till the end of June.
