A Tittynope of a Hope

This poem was written in answer to The Word of the Day Challenge:

Tittynope means: A small quantity of something left over, such as uneaten meat on the side of a plate or dregs of beer left in the glass.

Here’s what I came up with…

A Tittynope of a Hope

You haven’t got a tittynope of a hope

If you don’t find a way to cope

Deal with the things making you mad

Dispose of that makes you sad

You’re better then leftover rotten meat

Capable of many a grandiose feat

You’re not the dregs of beer in a can

But you have to be your own point-man

If you want more than a tittynopes chance

You have to throw those mental demons askance

Dig deep and find a way to fight

Claw, scratch and climb with all your might

The world wants to keep you down

Rise up, make it look like a clown

Everybody wants to see you fail

Make them pay, put on your chainmail

Now is the time you go to battle

Make them squirm, gasp and prattle

You have to do it all on your own

But one day success will be your throne

Thanks for reading my friends. As always there are more stories and poems to be enjoyed (I hope) in the Short Stories and Short Stories 2 and Poetry Corner tabs.

Have a great day!
