RAMBUNCTIOUS RHYMES; DYSFUNCTIONAL DEMANDS: Tanka Tuesday Weekly Poetry Challenge #305

For this week’s Tanka Tuesday Weekly Poetry Challenge Colleen has encouraged us to compose a freestyle/free verse or syllabic poem using at least 3 words from the list of 100 random generated words below. I chose rambunctious, dysfunctional & disturbed and the syllabic form of symatrelle as it’s served me well in the past! Hope ye enjoy the read! πŸ™πŸ€žπŸ˜πŸ“–


He is a little rambunctious

Some say, dysfunctional and disturbed
I pray, that he’s not too perturbed

Been without his father since the age of six
Has never settled because he doesn’t mix
Acts up so that they keep having to up sticks
And move. Certain problems that you can’t fix

His behaviour is now uncontrollable
His weary mother is inconsolable

He is a little rambunctious

  1. Hehe! A little rambunctious is an understatement! To be so bad that you must move away from an area sounds like there needs to be some intervention for his poor mother and he needs to face the consequences of his actions! As for the poem – it is a lovely symatrelle and works so well with this topic!!

    1. Quite an understatement indeed Muri! πŸ‘πŸ˜›πŸ˜‚ I was hoping not so much of an understatement as to spoil the enjoyment of the poem. And I think I’ve managed that! πŸ€žπŸ™πŸ˜ Yeh, the symatrelle definitely does compliment it! πŸ’―πŸ‘ Thanks very much for your feedback Muri and delighted you enjoyed it! πŸ˜πŸ™


  2. I’ve always liked the word rambunctious. I’d like to get to the root of his story. There are reasons for such things. My brother was like that and he had the rambunctious beaten out of him 😦
