Catch-22 – Catena Rondo

That eternal conundrum, the catch-22

Pinning you to the bottom of the ladder

Try to move up, but get pushed down faster

That eternal conundrum, the catch-22.

That first paid job, should be such a proud moment

You’re ready to work after years of just books

But they want experience, some grey in your looks

That first paid job, should be such a proud moment

Is there no value in enthusiasm or exuberance?

The willingness to learn and a fresh perspective?

Instead its held against you with stone cold directives

Is there no value in enthusiasm or exuberance?

Dear Readers,

The style of poetry you just read is the Catena Rondo created by Robin Skelton. It is made up of four-line stanzas (quatrain) where the 2nd and 3rd line form a rhyming couplet and the 1st and 4th line are the same.

There is no fixed syllable pattern, rhyme scheme or meter. The poem can made up of any number of stanzas as well.

Hope you all had a great weekend & have a good week ahead! 🙂
