Paint chip Octave 1

This month Linda Kruschke is linking all the paint chip challenges together. The first eight-line verse or octave has to include three of the words or phrases: teddy bear, Sisyphus’ boulder, old leather boots, red carpet and coffee.

Don’t forget to visit Linda’s blog for the whole of the challenge, her poem and links to other participants’ blogs.

Until I have all the paint chips, I can’t choose a proper title.

Octave 1

Sometimes life feels like Sisyphus’ boulder.
No-one rolls out the red carpet for us;
Sometimes they give us the cold shoulder
And don’t even drink coffee with us.
We needn’t keep feeling hard done by.
Although some tasks are repetitive,
Thinking of others and how we can try
To help is better than being competitive.
