Wednesday Poetry Prompts: 172

This is the final Wednesday Poetry Prompt before we begin the April PAD Challenge--a poem a day throughout April. Hope to see everyone on April 1! Until then...

...this week's prompt is to write a "one last thing" poem. Maybe the one last thing is writing a poem. Maybe it's finishing a task. Maybe it's doing a good deed. Or whatever it may be. Many of us do "one last thing" right before we do "one more thing." ;)

Here's my attempt:

"One Last Note"

Please leave the door unlocked.
I'll return as the cuckoo clock
starts going cuckoo, cuckoo,
and I'd love to find that you
are going cuckoo for me too.
