Writers Island - Controversial

Written for the Writers Island prompt - Controversial

Little miss Polly polyamorous
Don’t she just think that she’s so glamorous
Her, him and her mono-poly combo

Dancing in the gym with him she thinks, hey
Beats that polyester fashionista
From the polytechnic that lives next door

Or that bloke, misogynist Sylvester
With his carrier bag mentality
Serial monogamist, etcetera.

Then there’s that polythene politician
Who has no clue about which way is up
Is he hetro, homo, bigot or what?

Polygamy is seen as blasphemy
Metro sex, - metrosexuality?
Polyamorist, - polyamory!

Mahogany bedpost monogamous
Monotonous monogamy? Not me
I’m a multidimensionality

Me and my other personality.
Not tried ethical non-monogamy
Twist my arm and I’ll test it properly.
polyamourosity Vs polyamorousity and polyamorosity...


  1. This is fun to read light verse. I like the play of words - almost tongue twisters - and the alliterations are nice in an amusing kind of way, they gave me that certain grin in my face while reading the poem.

    I wish you well.

  2. Thanks Jeques, I wish you well too!

  3. All for one and one for all, one on one or not at all. Whatever - it's what makes the world go round.

  4. Hi Stan, this is meant to be a controversial subject.

  5. In my opinion the last paragraph is the most interesting in this. It is a very contrevesial subject indeed.

  6. I like your word play and your handling of a controversial subject. Spot on.

  7. Thanks Sara, it's not a personal viewpoint, the narrator is simply enticing the reader...

    Thanks again for your response.

  8. Thanks Nicole at Ravens Wing Poetry!

    Hi Philip, does 'politician' qualify?
