Today marks 4 weeks in (with 2 days to go), and today’s prompt comes from Jonathan Edward Ondrashek.
Here’s Jonathan’s prompt: Write a poem illuminating how it feels to stand up for what is right in the face of adversity in the workplace.
Robert’s attempt at a Workplace Adversity Poem:
“Poets March on Wall Street”
We want more stocks, more options.
We want more up and down line graphs.
We want more people freaking out
when we start freaking out. We want
more people paying attention to our
ups and our downs. Mostly, we want
more people paying attention. The rest
would be a nice year-end bonus.
Thank you, Jonathan, for the very unique prompt today. Click here to connect with Jonathan on Facebook.
