He was not to know that (Poetry Challenge #3)

For this poetry challenge, I needed to include:

  • Hippo-potenuse
  • Pedunculate
  • Never Ending Lubrication
  • Spherical

I decided the best way to address this was by a visual poem. Concrete poetry (visual poems) are one of my favourites because you use more than just language to evoke a response.

I hope you enjoy it.

He was not to know that.

He was not to know that.

Grippo the Hippo slid down the imaginary hippo-potenuse, uncertain if he would reach a stick bottom – which was spherical, of course. Of course, the stalk, (not stork) carrying the wet pedunculates like a laden tumour had never ending lubrication but he was not to know that.
