I love our union, WordPress

(Must not forget cap P)

I find it so exciting

wordpress and poet me

Shit...forgot the P...and W

Learning code? I’m past it

(Remember Don cap P)

I would be more than hopeless

Word Press come marry me

Shit...there's no space

Take me with your hidden code

Make all my dreams come true

Help me grow in Blogger Land

And fertilize me too

    Don, this poem exhibits a great burden on the writer’s mind. How to spell WordPress correctly!
    I still can’t do it without looking first and then writing it. Lol!
    Why did they have to make it so tough? You’ve certainly brought out the funny in this weird dilemma.
    Congratulations on this piece.


    1. Thankyou Terveen. i did get around the WordPress OK it was working out how to do things that was a ‘nightmare’. Wanting to try something different but scared things would disappear and be irretrievable. So much of it was trial and error. Even now I’m scare to touch some buttons.

      Ah, WP can be a fickle lady at times……

    1. Thankyou Patricia. WordPress and me are happily ‘married’ now. But gosh it took a time. She had me running in circles for ages. Having said that she has been fertilizing me constantly and I have blossomed. Terveen will vouch for the effect this fertilization process is having in my website Flippant, Comic and Serious (lovingly referred to as FCS)……I’m glad it put a smile on your face….

      1. Oh, WordPress is a sly Mistress. You watch out for her 🙂
        Terveen is amazing, she affectionately but firmly motivates and commands when it comes to writing. 😉

        1. I sorta got the Mistress under the thumb Patricia but as you say I need to watch out for her.

          Terv is indeed a firm motivator and commander. She encourages me to write nonsense Patricia. She says it’s inspiring. Who am I to disagree?……..Write more nonsense Don she says. I dare not refuse she who is in charge……

    1. Thankyou Isha, WordPress and I are getting along quite nicely now. She was not an easy lady to work out to begin with. It took a while to work out the right buttons to press. You gotta work out the right buttons to get the best out of a lady, if you follow me…..

    This is great, I love the comic relief in regards to WordPress. It takes some getting use to but then I struggle with instagram. Very cleaver and creative piece.

        You are so welcome. It is my pleasure. I really enjoyed reading the pieces. Thank you for your kind comment. I believe that “keen sense” developed at a very young age and comes from being extremely sensitive. Have an amazing week as well. I am smiling, grateful for that too. 🤗❤️Joni
