#NaPoWriMo: A Poem A Day – Day 20

Hi everyone! Today is day Twenty of the national poetry month competition. Two-thirds of the way through, already!

Here’s my offering >>>


[Instructions:] From NaPoWriMo Day Twenty … Write a poem that anthropomorphises a kind of food. It could be a favourite food of yours, or maybe one you feel conflicted about. 


Pizza, Pepperoni, Snack, Face, Cartoon, Character


Today’s poem is a PALINDROME POEM. The words are mirrored around a central reversal point, and read the same backwards and forwards.

I watch you

salivate greedily

stare, hungry

hidden killer lights eye

lips licked

leap taken


taken leap

licked lips

eye lights killer hidden

hungry, stare

greedily salivate

you watch I



I hope you enjoyed this little bit of fun, which expresses the stand-off/stare-off oft encountered between Pizza and I! Honestly, we bring out the worst in each other 😉😉

Have a wonderful day, everyone, and I’ll see you tomorrow with Day Twenty-One on the NaPoWriMo 30 Day Poetry Challenge 🙂
