National Poetry Writing Month 2021, Day 16: Off the Skeltonic path

My Day 16 poem is my response to the NaPoWriMo.net prompt, which is to write a Skeltonic. Not really my thing, but I went with it anyway.

Today’s form is the Skeltonic.
I’ve never had a colonic,
or heard of a good mnemonic,
but I’m sure it’s just as fun.
And if the score is one to one
and that’s the winning run,
and your big crush is a nun,
then I’m afraid you’re out of luck.
You may just want to get
takeout teriyaki instead.
