Sorry for the late prompt this morning. The Brewer family car nearly didn’t start when we took Tammy to the bus stop–so after dropping her off, we took a family trip to the local AutoZone to get a new car battery. Now the car starts fine again; yay!
For today’s prompt, write a charged poem. Maybe the poem has an electrical charge or a charge to a credit card. Or maybe there’s a charge from a bull or a battle charge. I’m sure there are any number of ways to charge the old poetic battery with this prompt. Have at it.
Here’s my attempt at a charged poem:
will it start
or won’t it?
i’ve willed it
to go, so
why won’t it?
i will it.
you won’t it.
how goes it?
here we sit.
