Tea in a teapot

If I had fought
And not got caught
I would have taught
My little tot
Rather than rot
In a prison so hot.

I resolved that I ought
To find a slot
For an escape plot
When the gaurds would not
Fire a gunshot.

Help, I sought
From the General's daught
Whom I thought
Was a sexpot.

Either she forgot
Or did boycott
But I waited a lot
at the fixed spot.

Tired, I got
Ready for a bloodshot
When I bethought
That I was on a cot
And my mom had brought
Tea in a teapot.

What was the inspiration behind this, VG ?
Did someone challenge you that you cannot write poetry ??
:D

Whatever it is, its too much of rhyme! It it an exhaustive list of -ot/-ought s ? :D

Did you miss 'jot' and 'dot'?
I wonder what is 'daught' :-S
My Yingleesh is byad !
VG said…
Daught means daughter. I coined the word to match the rhyme. All poets do that.. ;-)

I missed a few words becoz to add all those would mean that the rhyme would be too too much...

Hey Vangi, Your first effort is very gud...... I am waiting for the second and ofcourse the better...
Rajneesh said…
you imagine a lot
and that is what you wrote
i hardly ever thought
that you could this way jot
though a critic i am not
its a beginning you've got
you can improve your plot
and we expect something hot!
