A Writing Faux Pas

They say never to use cliché’s within poetry. In the essence of unoriginal originality, I have created a writing faux pas.  We have all been stamped with a cliché’d description at one time or another. Why not embrace it.

I am a Ranga that burns and an Australian that surfs. I sing in the shower and dance in the rain. I make lemonade out of lemons and then make a tequila based cocktail. I have daemons in my back pocket, and stars in my eyes. I fall down and get back back up, then step into the ring motivated by a knock out punch.   One cliché does not match the next, which makes my critique unique. In the words of Dr. Seuss, “Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than you.”

There is no one alive that is Youer than you Dr. Seuss
There is no one alive that is Youer than you

Jane Doe is…A walking Cliché

Always the bridesmaid, never the bride

Squeaky clean in the ring, but not enjoying the ride

Born and raised, to be bored to tears

Bringing home bacon, from the churning of gears

No rags to riches, as the fat lady has sung

Not out on a limb, as your biting your tongue

As clean as a whistle, yet every bones of contention

Beating round bushes, cruel not your intention

There’s no blazing of trails, as your falling in line

On the bandwagon, yet the whole hogs not your swine

Is there a trick up your sleeve, or a spare two cents?

Are you holding your horses, just to sit on the fence?

Taking one for the team, as silence is golden

Their decks are all full, as your cards are folding

You’re a spitting image cliché, with a role true blue

Don’t abandon your ship, as there’s no one “Youer than you”
