2016 Nov PAD Chapbook Challenge Day 20 – ‘The More The Merrier?’

alone-in-a-crowd

Today’s prompt: Pick a popular saying, make it the title of your poem, and then, write your poem.

The More the Merrier?

It is a motto so often said
Time again through cheerful teeth
That more therefore must mean merrier,
But simply stuffing more bodies
Into an otherwise indifferent room
Does not always a merriment make.

The ‘more’ may prove too much
Or even create chaos and strife
In a group firmly set in its ways.
Truthfully this tired phrase is
An adage failing to take into account
The less desirable traits of humanity.

Last year’s poem for Day 20: ‘They Came from the Lagoon’
