Twinkle, Schminkle

A triptych of shardorma (3-5-3-3-7-5 syllables) for today’s Ragtag Daily Prompt…

Stars twinkle.
What else would they do,
being stars?
Twinkle on,
you stupid, friggin’ sparklers;
I don’t give a crap.

Sunshine rocks!
Give me some of THAT!
Screw the stars.
Sunshine rules
and it don’t need no twinkle.
(Twinkle would be bad.)

Shine on, Sol!
Put those stars to shame!
We don’t need
them pinheads.
Puny little twinklebutts
ruining the nights.


One thought on “Twinkle, Schminkle

  1. Two thoughts came to mind… the sun is also a star and “twinklebutts”!!!! This made me laugh in such a great way. I have been longing for sunshine days!!
