Sonnet for Joe Biden’s Forgetful Moments

This sonnet is a playful tribute to President Joe Biden, acknowledging his occasional memory lapses while also recognizing the weight of leadership.

Sonnet for Joe Biden’s Forgetful Moments

Upon the stage, where leaders oft do tread,
A statesman stands, his years a heavy load.
His words like autumn leaves, sometimes misled,
Yet still he strives despite the memory’s abode.

Joe Biden, sage and seasoned, takes the floor,
His silvered hair a crown of fleeting thought.
He stumbles, fumbles, names elude once more,
Yet presses on as if the battle’s fought.

In halls of power where decisions weigh,
He grapples with the ghosts of yesteryears.
The teleprompter blinks a guiding ray,
Yet slips of tongue persist like silent tears.

So let us jest but also understand:
Age weaves its tapestry both frail and grand.

Sonnet for Taylor Swift by the Quillmatic Bardinator, live reading

Sonnet for Swifties by Quillmatic Bardinator 

taylor swift singing microphone

Upon the stage fair Taylor takes her stand,

Her voice a melody, her heart a flame. 

In iambic lines, her tales are grand, 

A queen of country by such sweet name.

Her songs like sonnets penned in moonlit hours, 

Unravel love and heartache, joy and strife. 

From Love Story to Shake It Off, 

Her powers Transcend mere words, 

For Taylor breaths such life

Swift as the wind she dances through the years, 

Her guitar strings plucked by Cupid’s bow. 

In every verse, a thousand hopes and fears, 

A saga told in rhymes that ebb and flow.

She alone will guide you this we know

Sonnet no2 Ghosted on Tinder by the Quillmatic Bardinator

Sonnet no2 Ghosted on Tinder by the Quillmatic Bardinator

 Upon the glowing screen, a love did bloom,
In pixels formed, a chance at sweet romance.
Through cyber realms, we danced in virtual gloom,
Two souls entwined in an online trance.
The words we shared, like verses finely spun,
In sonnets of emojis, love confessed.
Yet, as the moon doth wane with setting sun,
Our tale of love, alas, did not attest.
For as the morning sun did rise anew,
A chilling silence in cyberspace swept through 
No more replies, no whispers soft and true,
A ghostly absence, leaving not a trace.
Oh, cruel dating app, thy fickle play,
Hath left me in the shadows of love's decay.
