So after today’s poem, we’ll be three-fifths of the way through this November challenge. That’s pretty impressive. And, as has been noted by several of you, it’s not just the quantity of writing that’s been amazing about November; it’s also the quality. Oh yeah!
For today’s prompt, I want you to write a point-of-view poem. Write from the perspective from someone or something obvious (or not so obvious) related to your theme. If you’re writing a series of accounting poems, then today is the day you can write a poem from the perspective of your spreadsheet. If you’re writing a bunch of baker poems, time to share the voice of your dough (or even your apron). If you’re writing a series of poems from the perspective of an accountant for a bakery, then, well, I guess you have some options.
Here’s my attempt for the day:
I’m the only sure way to kill a werewolf,
the only way to make sure a werewolf stays dead.
If you blow them up,
their body pieces will find a way back to each other.
Regular bullets just slow them down,
and wooden stakes only kill vampires.
Cages can confine,
but only I kill.
After all, guns don’t kill werewolves,
