Happy Black Friday?!? Okay, not a big holiday in the Brewer household, I'm not going to judge if it is in yours. Who doesn't want a good deal, right? Whether you brave the Black Friday mobs or hide from them, be sure to poem today!

For today’s prompt, write a "how I'll be remembered" poem. It's an interesting question: How will I be remembered? My amazing looks? My incredible personality? My charitable nature? My goofy jokes? The cranky guy who's always telling people to stay off his lawn? Dive into this introspection today.

Here’s my attempt at a How I'll Be Remembered Poem:

“when i am dead & under ground”

when i am dead & under ground
will people mourn or say hooray
or worse will they not make a sound
when i am dead & under ground
because no loss when not around
the guy who had too much to say
when i am dead & under ground
will people mourn or say hooray
