2012 November PAD Chapbook Challenge: Day 26

Publish date:

We are really into the final days of this challenge now. I can't believe how fast November has swept in and is trying to sweep out already. I hope everyone survived the holiday weekend!

Today's prompt comes from a former winner of the challenge: Shann Palmer.

Here's Shann's prompt: Write a poem about something you collect (or would collect if you could).

Robert's attempt at a Collection Poem:

"Rocks"

They're everywhere,
and they don't cost nothing,
and the world is made of them.
I don't understand
why more people don't collect them,
and adore them,
and write poems about them.
