2011 November PAD Chapbook Challenge: Day 8

Publish date:

It's time for our second Tuesday of the month, which happens to be Election Day here in the States. Hope everyone has fun casting ballots today.

Here are the options for today's "Two for Tuesday" prompt:

  1. Write a paranormal poem. In case you're unsure, click here for a thorough definition of the term "paranormal."
  2. Write a normal poem. I'm not sure what a normal poem is, but if you do (and you want to write one), go for it!

Here's my attempt:

"C'est impossible!"

In Ohio, it's typical to see
Bigfoot every couple years,
and everyone who watches TV
knows that ghost shows exist
that at least muddy the waters,
but the existence of extraterrestrial
life is just plumb crazy!
