Beach Box

On the beach
At the spring equinox
A box
A brown box
A drowned box
A bashed box
A stoned box
A locked box
Had taken hard knocks
Pounded by waves
Or perhaps pounded by rocks
Yes, rocks must have been chucked
By a bunch of drunk jocks
I take stock
It is locked
I pound the lock with a rock (o the irony)
What a shock!
Inside the box
The locked box
The bound box
The pounded box
The damaged
Tattered box
Is a pair
Just one pair
One pair of men’s socks


This is a nonsense poem. Nonsense poems are great fun to write: simply choose a word and find as many rhymes or near-rhymes as you can, then try to weave it into some sort of story or logical progression (think Dr Seuss). But it doesn’t matter if you can’t; just have fun with the words!

You can also repeat words as often as you like, as I have done here.

Here’s a great website to help you: Rhymezone.

    Just one question I have posed
    Do you feel like you’ve been hosed?
