For today’s prompt, please write a consumption poem. There are any number of things we consume as people, and even more if you think outside the human experience. Some are good, some not so much. But there’s so much consumption going on every single day that it’s a great topic for poeming.
Here’s my attempt:
“Black (out) Friday”
I’d be up hunting for the best deals too
if it weren’t for yesterday and all that
food and football. I’d say maybe next year,
but I know both my stomach and taste buds
too well. So good on you for getting up
and helping the economy. I’ll be
content to pay more so I can sleep in.
