(4/27/10 Prompt Poem. Acrostic poem about a unique super power).


By Christopher J. Jarmick

I always knew when Mom had to go to the bathroom.

Today, in a crowded room, my super

When you’re done, you’ll have an acrostic poem. (Though the prompt could be as simple as “write an acrostic poem,” the word sounds scary this late in the month. This prompt is designed to ease you into the final stretch. Don’t stress too much about the word you choose, have fun..

The root of the word Poetry is from the Greek ποιέω (poieō), “‘I make’”). , poiesis, meaning a “making” or
