2020 November PAD Chapbook Challenge: Day 12

For: https://www.writersdigest.com/write-better-poetry/2020-november-pad-chapbook-challenge-day-12

I don’t have any other poems for this month but thought I would participate anyhow.

Today’s prompt is to write a number in the title poem.

Ode to “9”

A long time ago in the west  
A boy swore he’d try out his best  
He tried to have fun  
With one word he was done  
The number nine he wore on his chest  
 
The boy who thought he could count  
Upon a large steed he did mount  
He thought nine was a charm  
He yelled raising his arm  
His words flowing, like out from a fount 

The boy laughed and rode far away
For more than nine nights and a day 
When he got home 
Said he’s done with the roam 
And upon his small bed he did lay.
