POETRY FROM A NOVELIST….POSTED AT OUR POETRY SITE!!!!
Surprise! I wrote another poem after all. I told you yesterday that this is National Poetry Month, so I thought I could at least make an attempt to write more than one poem. My poem today is titled “A Cautionary Tale” and it is loosely based on someone I know.
Wikipedia describes a cautionary tale as follows:
“A cautionary tale is a tale told in folklore, to warn its hearer of a danger. There are three essential parts to a cautionary tale, though they can be introduced in a large variety of ways. First, a taboo or prohibition is stated: some act, location, or thing is said to be dangerous. Then, the narrative itself is told: someone disregarded the warning and performed the forbidden act. Finally, the violator comes to an unpleasant fate, which is frequently related in expansive and grisly detail.”
So without further ado, submitted for your approval…
