Limerick Poetry Challenge – Draft

This week, the Limerick Poetry Challenge over on Mind and Life Matters is rather clever. Rashmi has set the challenge of using at least two different meanings of any homonym you choose in your poem.

This peaked my interest as the prompt I set for this week’s Six Word Story Challenge was Draft –  a homonym I purposely set to stir up variations on a theme.

To tie in with the theme of the Six Word Story Challenge, I used Draft as my inspiration for the limerick.

Draft

The draft raised the hairs on his skin,

His life and his world in a spin.

His burgen was heavy

With fear of the many.

His draft wakes the soldier within.
