Ole Viejo

A cocky bird of low degree?
not me.
Ole Viejo’s just a name,
so lame.
I was cock of the walk,
till the hawk;
His aim just a lark,
A mere shot in the dark,
Ended Ole Viejo’s last squawk.

for more (and better) examples of today’s poetry challenge:

    LOL! Too much fun! This cracked me up.
    To form a true Ovillejo, though, you’ll need to weave lines 2, 4 and 6 together to become line 10.
    But I’ve gotta say, this kicky little piece and its fun title have made my day. 🙂
