Convenient Dan

Convenient Dan

is the King of Fools

because he knows the rules

and will be obedient

if it’s convenient.

But if obedience

is not a convenience

then Dan

becomes a man

with a different plan

and banks on the charm of his smile

to gain forgiveness while

he breaks the rules with flair and style.

His motto seems to be,

“If a rule is stupid or silly

I won’t let it stop me.”

The King of Fools

likes to write his own rules.

Beware of Convenient Dan!

  1. Would you be interested in your poem (Convenient Dan) being published in an online literary magazine of mine? It has eleven issues now (one new every two months) so has being going a while and gained quite a bit of interest on WP, Tumblr, and Twitter. It’s a free magazine, there’s no money involved for the writers or myself. The aim is to help promote writers on websites and blogs from all over the internet.

    Copyright remains with the writer, plus I provide links back to where the work was originally published and also any social media links you might wish to include.

    The next issue is published around 16th November, so not a lot of time left – sorry about that, I’ve been a little too busy for my own good recently, very behind with everything now! If you’d like to, please let me know, but if not, then don’t hesitate to say no, I don’t mind being turned down! 🙂

  2. Oh, I’m so sorry, I didn’t get a notification of your message, and stupidly forgot to double check!! Feeling really silly now. 😐

    Would you like me to add it to this issue or I can post it into the next issue which will be in January. I don’t mind either. It might get more views if it goes in the January issue as new posts always get a lot more views. But anyway, it’s up to you.

    Just wondering if you didn’t click on the reply here and posted a comment instead of a reply, that might be why I didn’t get your message. I have accidentally done that a few times on my blog. Unfortunately WP doesn’t work like FB, where you get all notifications on posts you’ve commented on – can be annoying that, but does at least avoid missing replies.

    Sincere apologies for missing you out – I will sort that out one way or another. Let me know which you’d prefer. 🙂

  3. I think I’ll add your poem to the list for the January issue, because it’s guaranteed to get more views that way – it’s only fair to do that, seeing as I messed up. Well, thanks for being understanding, and thank you for the poetry – will look forward to sharing it!! 😀

  5. Just wanted to say thank you for allowing me to publish your intriguing poetry on The Writing Garden, it was a pleasure to share it! 🙂 I hope the image was okay for you? It was difficult one to find the right image for.

  6. You’re very welcome indeed!! 😊 Well, that’s pretty much what I find every writer says. It’s rare for anyone to be asked on blogs. I’ve never been asked to publish my writing either. I was asked to write something last year for the website about ocean things, I guess that is something… and I made a video… got carried away!! But other than that, no one has asked to publish mine. And the general public reading blogs very rarely comment. If only they all knew how we are left wondering if anyone even remotely likes what we create. Ah well, that is mostly how life goes. We just have keep going and believe ‘someone’ out there is admiring it! 😌
