Not Just One

Before me
Its emptiness
Is indeed a shock
Remnants of its past fullness
Cling in memory to mock

The fault Lays with me
I cannot quibble
Once full bag of crisps now done
Thought I’d have a nibble
Lost the bet on that one

“Lays Chips: betcha can’t eat just one

dVerse ~ Poets Pub | Quadrille #145: Nibble

Tonight at the pub, Mish tends bar and gives us a a little something to nibble in a quadrille prompt.

I plead the fifth on whether the above poem is based on real or recent events.

A quadrille, is simply a poem of 44 words, excluding the title. It can be in any form, rhymed or unrhymed, metered, or unmetered. You MUST use the word “nibble” or some form of the word in your poem.

  1. Haha! A big difference between the 1st and 2nd stanza! An ode to a packet o’ crisps, and I thought it was v funny how it went from what I thought was serious to legendary!

  2. Great contrast in stanzas to save the humour. My newest attempt is to put some in a bowl and stuff that bag in the cupboard…..really far……sometimes it works.
