Wednesday Poetry Prompts: 185

Publish date:

For today's prompt, write a plea poem. Of course, a plea can mean a few different things. First, a plea can be an allegation leveled at someone. Second, a plea can be the defendant's answer to the accusations (for instance, guilty or not guilty). Third, a plea can be an appeal.

Here's my attempt at a plea poem:

"Summer, Don't Be So Mean"

Summer, don't be so mean
the grass turns yellow instead of green.

Summer, don't be so hot
the blood boils like it's in a pot.

Summer, don't be so quick
the children all miss you like a trick.

Summer, don't be so sweet
when Winter comes down I'll miss your heat.
