“Guess What?”, a Poem

“Guess What?”

Person Holding Question Mark by Anemone123 on Pixabay

Guess what?

Hydra is the largest constellation in the sky.
It’s also an island in Greece that
Bears no relation to any villanous organization.

Guess what?

Callahan was Dirty Harry’s last name
And also the name of the company
Where Tommy sold brake pads.

Guess what?

Sting’s first name is Gordon
Or Steve, depending on whether
You want Roxeanne or a Scorpion Death Drop.

Guess what?

A baby platypus is called a puggle
So is a baby echidna and I’m not
Even echidding you about that.

Guess what?
Guess what?
Guess
What?

Chicken butt.


Sometimes I get the last line of the poem and work backwards. Sometimes that even sounds brilliant, like I know exactly what I’m doing!
