My eighth poem for National Poetry Writing Month uses the prompt from Napowrimo.net—to write a poem relying on repetition. I was having trouble with it—until I saw a young (35-year-old) Ted Knight on an episode of Peter Gunn…
The ballad of Ted Knight
Each night they knighted Ted Knight
Ted Knight disappeared into the night
Each morning, Master Ted Knight
denied he’d been knighted
but night after night he became the vaunted
night-time knight, Sir Ted Knight
Eventually, Ted Knight, knighted nightly
as Sir Ted Knight, the night-time knight
grew up to become Ted Knight, the Emmy-winning actor
known more for the Mary Tyler Moore Show
in the role of Ted Baxter

You’ll blow up real soon. Good job man!
This made me laugh. 🙂 Maybe more so just because my name is Day.
