Igor Walks

(5 Syllable Mono-Rhymed Quatrains)

.

.

I want to fit in.

It aint happenin’,

Faith is wearin’ thin,

In this world of sin.

.
When Igor Walks

.
I’m an ugly man.

It wasn’t my plan.

Since my life began,

Did the best I can.
Everywhere I go,

It’s just a freak show.

I wish they would know

To go with the flow,

.
When Igor walks.

.
Just want to be me!

I wish they could see,

I have a carefree

Personality.

.
But when I get seen,

Considered obscene.

It’s really so mean.

Please, don’t make a scene!

.
When Igor walks

.

Author Notes

People can be cruel. I was just walking in the park and spotted this scene. I’m not sure what was going on, but this character was causing a commotion. He might have been in costume, I’m not sure. But it moved me to consider, what if he wasn’t, and just was out for a walk at the park like me, trying to live his life.


This poem is a set of mono-rhymed Quatrains with a repeating refrain. The syllable count is 5. The rhyme scheme is aaaaa B cccc  dddd B eeee ffff B, where the capital letter is the repeated refrain.
