Doing a Hobbo! Doing a Hobbo, what does it mean? The expression implies that your brain is not keen enough to come up with a quick, witty remark, needs time to reflect before making its mark. Requires contemplation, reflection, some thought, then with a deft flick, the ball's in your court. A short, pithy poem, initially funny, it quickly transpires is bang on the money. That's doing a Hobbo, it is happy, not triste, then, just as you're chuckling, you are caught by the twist.

Prime rhyme time Of the many pastimes, that I play at sometimes My favourite thing is the writing of rhymes. I've fiddled with riddles, since I was but little. A bad one's a sad one, a good 'un fair chimes. I grill and I thrill, as I bend to my will. It's fruity, it suits me, it's lemon and limes. Unbidden, the words spring to life in my head. I grab one, I stab one, before they have fled. They won't go away, they're determined to stay And dance, in a trance, in a sashay display. The rhyme in the stanza, for me is the answer. Each Haiku that I do, a bonny bonanza. A bee in my bonnet, as I sing my sonnet To use it, is music, to lose it is chronic. I'm impelled to, compelled to, I must do, I need ter Search, nay research, for some rhyme in my meter. I'll play all the day, for some words that just may E'en shift me, uplift me, a roll in the hay. It's easy, it's peasy, it's what poets do It sneaks in and peaks in, while I'm on the loo. Sometimes sensational, oft inspirational Frantic, its antics, my Little Boy Blue. I'm in it, to win it, I don't often bin it When my wit, is unfit though, I might have to thin it. If I get marooned, in the mid-afternoon By a girl in a whirl, or a dame in a swoon Have a nail in my pail, catch a thorn in my prune Anchor my Tanka, before it balloons. Then I mean, to be seen, to make it a rule To read to the readers, my audience who'll Say Hobbo's a laddo, he's nobody's fool He's sunny, he's funny, the drool in my pool. So for humans with lumens, with light in your pen And actors with factors poetical, then Stop fighting, get writing, through dictionary roam Desire to inspire us, and sire us a poem. Inspired by an original poem by Burges Johnson
