Slingshot

Loading your slingshot – you let fly

An insult at dinner…well prepared

Guests turned, a collective sigh

Loading your slingshot – you let fly

They waited for the hurt reply

Smiling smugly, you missed… they cared

Loading your slingshot – you let fly

An insult at dinner…well prepared.

    • Thank you and thank you for introducing the form… I have to confess I never thought I’d be able to write a triolet…I usually avoid these forms of poetry so I feel quite pleased!

  1. oh i hate when they load slingshots to hurt people with well-placed words – and esp. during meal times in the public…very well captured and love what you did with the form..

  2. I like this a lot. Reading through the dVerse triolets is showing me how versatile this apparently simple and restrictive form can be.
