‘To Plot Your Doom’ (Vowel limitation poem)


(A poem written from a prompt as part of 2015’s April PAD Challenge from Writer’s Digest- which was as follows:

‘Pick 2 vowels and write a poem using words that only contain one or both of those vowels’.

Now this was an extremely tricky one. I opted to only use ‘O’ and ‘U’ and, well…I’ll leave you to be the judge of how well it worked 😉

To Plot Your Doom

How could you not know
Who plots your doom?
You look upon frowns
From your phony chums
Who murmur on you
For dusky hour on hour
Round your slothful turn
To plot your utmost drop.


Does anybody else dabble in constrained writing/poetry? Would be interesting to see other’s attempts 🙂
