Pink Flamingos – NaPoWriMo/GloPoWriMo 2020 Early-Bird Challenge

Pink Flamingos

Perfection in pink
Ignoble, some might say,
Notorious, nonsensical,
Kitsch, in full, on crude display

Flamingos,
Long-legged, lovely loons
Aping graceful water nymphs
Molded plastic paragons
Immortal relics, sans of vim
No other curio competes
Gnomes defer their plotted place
Outdone, no crass landscape’s complete
So gird your lawns, flamingo pink!

For NaPoWriMo/GloPoWriMo 2020 Early-Bird challenge, “write about your favorite bird”. I couldn’t resist! I love plastic pink flamingos! The more, the better. I once thought about displaying a yard full with a sign that read, pink flamingo sanctuary! 🤣 The best part is that there’s still time for me to make that dream come true! This poem is an acrostic poem, where the first letter of each word spells the title…Pink Flamingos.
