DAY 22  – NaPoWriMo Prompt for  April 22, 2015 

Be political.  Write a political poem.  It can be general, or inspired by a specific current event.    Make it purposeful and obviously political.  Try NOT to be subtle.  Make the opinion and viewpoint clear.  Write it from an adopted voice or your own.   Shout out!  Shout back!


Prompt 20 suggested you incorporate an overheard conversation into a poem.

Remnants from Yesterday’s conversations

By Christopher J. Jarmick

We might buy a single engine plane

that can land on water.

36 thousand dollars.

I think I’d like to have three dogs.

Didn’t know if he was talking to me or on the phone.

The tree branches looked like horns, like Satan.

Oh okay, ignore me, pretend you don’t hear me.

They know. No secrets, no privacy.

Cold Play has a song about it.

I suppose you ignore that too?

Where’s my Writers Digest Poem a Day prompt poem?  I didn’t skip a day.

You’ll see it on tomorrow’s post.


Keep Writing
