Day 15: Terza Rima

Oh I'm feeling the pinch now...! It's the halfway point today of the NaPo challenge, and now, the slump seems to have set in! 

Today's prompt is to write a terza, a 3-line rhyming (ABA scheme) poem. I'm not a fan of rhyme, but gave it a shot anyway, rhymed the first stanza, got stuck for ages at the next one, then gave up (after many attempts!) and left it unrhyming - and maybe unfinished too.


The day is as ripe as a peach.
But no mouths water.
We're scurvied beyond reach. 

All those juicy years gone to rot.
Now memories are maggots
that eat our insides.
