A pink flamingo sits at my desk
I think he is too picturesque.
He says he wants to write a poem
and that he'll use a pseudonym.
I ask, why not just use your name?
He say he wants to find more fame.
What is better than Pink Flamingo, my dear?
He say he wants to be William Shakespeare.
Oh, I'm going silly today. I've used a really big word in this poem, pseudonym, it is a nom de plum, or a pen name. If you had a pen name what would it be? Today's challenge is to write the poem you think Pink Flamingo would write. Some people would call this a mask poem--a poem written in the voice of another. I call it a persona poem. Have fun writing.
