Five Line No-Rhyme Time: Friday

I used to try to make my non-rhyming five line posts topical, thus I called them Topical Five Line No-Rhyme Time.

But, for sanity reasons, I am trying to restrain myself from being quite as topical as I have previously been.

This leaves me with no choice but to modify the title of my posts that used to be called Topical Five Line No-Rhyme Time, and to change them to simply Five Line No-Rhyme Time.

Hopefully you should get the point that they are no longer ‘Topical’ from that. Also hopefully, you won’t be expecting them to rhyme either.

Here’s a Five Line No-Rhyme Time verse–using the 2-4-6-8-2 syllable ‘American’ construction–that is not Topical at all. Unless you count it being published on the actual day of the week it is about ‘topical’. However, it won’t take long to be untopical again.

I would say that it probably only has a 1 in 7 chance of being topical, depending on when you are reading this.

often the day
that heralds the weekend
but under lockdown conditions

Thank you for visiting Scribblans today. Sorry it probably wasn’t very good this time.
Did you know, if you share this post on your social media, it might have the effect of making you feel better? About everything?
Yes it could. Well, try it if you don’t believe me then.

  1. Broadly topical in that it nicely encapsulates the last twelve months or so. Hopefully with the ever-reliable Boris’ roadmap, it will cease to be topical in June. Whether that is June 2021 or a subsequent June remains harder to predict.

    1. Personally–as it is lovely and quiet down here now and I don’t have the typical 9-5 any more–I would prefer it to stay as it is now, just without the chance of death if someone carrying plague sneezes in Bodmin. But I can understand the rest of the country is keen for it all to go to plan this time, probably so they can all descend on Cornwall in the summer.

      1. I must admit, ‘fear of death’ aside, I haven’t hated the last twelve months all that much. You can rest assured that I will not be descending on Cornwall in the summer. My perfect holiday destination is, by definition, likely to be somewhere that the rest of the world eschews.
