DMC: "Last Move" by Jane Yolen


I paid my dues,
No more to lose.
This show will be
A six-foot snooze.

Click HERE to read this month's interview with J. Patrick Lewis and Jane Yolen. They have challenged us to write an epitaph poem—a funny or clever verse that might appear on your chosen subject's tombstone.

Post your poem on our February 2018 padlet. While some contributions will be featured as daily ditties this month, all contributions will be included in a wrap-up celebration on Friday, February 23rd, and one lucky participant will win a copy of their morbidly humorous collection from Charlesbridge:


  1. Funny fun, fun! I only wish there was a way to like and comment on the padlet. There are so many chuckles there...and some sad reads too. Fun month.

  2. A "six-foot snooze"
    sounds like a bore.
    I'm waiting for
    one last encore!

  3. I don't think we should be worried. Pretty sure Jane still has about a million new poems & books to write....
