Write a poem every day of April with the 2020 April Poem-A-Day Challenge. For today's prompt, write a lucky and/or unlucky poem.

We're a week into the challenge now, and we get to celebrate with our first "Two-for-Tuesday" prompt! You can pick your favorite prompt, do both separately, or combine them into one poem. Your choice.

For today’s prompt:

  1. Write a lucky poem and/or...
  2. Write an unlucky poem.

Remember: These prompts are just springboards; you have the freedom to jump in any direction you want. In other words, it's more important to write a new poem than to stick to the prompt.

when he misses, but
all him when he scores.

Maybe he's correct,
but I still expect
to beat him at H-O-R-S-E.
