Getting lost is not a waste of time

wit or without ~ a blitz poem

call me
call quick
quick wit
quick to add
add ons suck
add to bill
bill in post
bill not paid
paid in advance
paid service

service with a smile
service secret
secret compartment
secret keeper
keeper of bees
keeper to be
be kind
be silly
silly high
silly till I die

die is cast
die another day
day break
day to blitz
blitz poem
blitz it up
up to no good
up in the air
air of Nike
air that lifts

lifts my spirits
lifts to life
life lines
life in progress
progress of poet
progress on pause
pause to listen
pause button
button rose
button fell

fell a tree
fell down flat
flat liner
flat number four
four lines left
four words without
without an end
without much thought


I wrote this blitz poem after seeing David of Skeptic’s kaddish have so much fun with this poetry form 😁 Thank you David.

  • Blitz Poem Rules…umm it kinda does 😉
  • Line 1 should be one short phrase or image (like “build a boat”)
  • Line 2 should be another short phrase or image using the same first word as the first word in Line 1 (something like “build a house”)
  • Lines 3 and 4 should be short phrases or images using the last word of Line 2 as their first words (so Line 3 might be “house for sale” and Line 4 might be “house for rent”)
  • Lines 5 and 6 should be short phrases or images using the last word of Line 4 as their first words, and so on until you’ve made it through 48 lines
  • Line 49 should be the last word of Line 48
  • Line 50 should be the last word of Line 47
  • The title of the poem should be three words long and follow this format: (first word of Line 3) (preposition or conjunction) (first word of line 47)
  • There should be no punctuation
