Chasing My Tail a Poem by Patty L. Fletcher

Chasing My Tail a Poem by Patty L. Fletcher

Oh! My! Chasing my tail!


Feeling, quite overwhelmed.

What if,

What if I fail?

Did I miss a post?

What was that noise?

A ghost?


It’s my stomach.

It wants some toast.

Oh! My! Chasing my Tail!

Comments, replies,


It’s lunch time.

Can I have fries?

Oh! My! Chasing my tail!

Blue wants out,

He’s wagging his tail.

Nudging, shoving,

Out of my chair.

Come on Mother,

Let’s get some air.

Back inside,

To the computer I fly!

What was that?

That, that just flew by.

Oh! My! Chasing my tail!


*Curse of the weary blogger.

    This is a fun style for a poem, Patty. Fast and frantic which compliments the topic.

    1. Hi Robbie, thanks for reading and commenting on my poem.
      The trouble with me and poetry is that I have not got any idea how they should be written. When do you go to a new line? Which punctuation belongs where?
      I just wrote it because I felt like, well, I was chasing my tail. LOL.
      It felt right.
      PS. I’m writing this online, and I’ve answered so many emails lately I was sitting here trying to make it send rather than pressing the post button. Told you I was chasing my tail.
