Not WDYTYA directly, but as it's World Poetry Day...

Postby phantomsteve » Wed Mar 21, 2018 10:33 am

I quickly wrote a poem in a few minutes before starting work - it's the first time that I've written a poem in a long time! It's not very complicated (no iambic pentameter or anything), but it's mine and I'm happy with it...

On #WorldPoetryDay, I have written a poem for the first time in a *long* time. It's not great, and was written in a few minutes before I started work... there's no iambic pentameter or anything....but it's MINE and I'm happy with it! https://t.co/TNYFR9hLbg




Parents, siblings, cousins...
Second, Third, Removed,
Looking for the family history,
And leaving no stone unmoved.

Using Ancetry, The Genealogist,
FindMyPast and good ol' FreeBMD,
Looking for the family history,
How are they all related to me?

"We want the next Census",
The Genealogists do all cry,
Looking for the family history,
When did Uncle George actually die?

Yet there is really something simple,
That all of us want to see,
Looking for the family history,
Is there anyone famous or heroic in my family tree!

Not sure why this doesn't have more notes, but as a fan of poetry I quite appreciated this. Although its already passed, I hope you enjoyed world poetry day.
