Jingle

Eleventh day of this year’s National Poetry Writing Month. Today’s prompt for today should be a little simpler. (As always, the prompts are optional). Once upon a time, poetry was regularly used in advertisements, most notably the Burma-Shave ads:


Said Farmer Brown
Who’s bald on top
“Wish I could
Rotate the crop”
Burma-Shave


Or

She put a bullet
Through his hat
But he’s had closer
Shaves than that
Burma-Shave

Today, I challenge you to write your own advertisement-poem. You don’t need to advertise Burma-Shave. Any product (or idea) will do. Perhaps you could write a poem advertising poetry? It certainly could use the publicity! On that note, let me leave you until tomorrow with this paen to the virtues of advertisement:

The codfish lays ten thousand eggs,
The homely hen lays one.
The codfish never cackles
To tell you what she’s done-
And so we scorn the codfish
While the humble hen we prize.
It only goes to show you
That it pays to advertise!

I am participating in A to Z Challenge 2014 where we write 26 posts in a month each day on one word from A to Z barring Sunday's. Today's word is "J".


I chose to market my blog through a jingle, as they say jingle is the best way to do it.
The tone for the jingle is based on this ad jingle of Nerolac Paints.

When you are looking for enjoyment

debate, argument or engagement

where is that,

where is that,

where is that,

at Scribble, at Scribble at Scribble at…



When you are looking for atonement

a poem, haiku or stories with some sentiment

where is that,

where is that,

where is that,

at Scribble, at Scribble at Scribble at…



When you are looking for abatement

without any whine or any complaint

a lot of laughter and amusement

where is that,

where is that,

where is that,

at Scribble, at Scribble at Scribble at…
