Last Wednesday prompt before April's poem-a-day challenge. Hope to see y'all here bright and early each day beginning on Saturday morning.

For today’s prompt, pick a music genre, make that the title of your poem, and then write a poem. So your poem could be titled "Jazz;" "Baby, I got the blues;" "Heavy Metal Heartache;" "Rockabilly Rumble;" or whatever else you can devise. Have fun with it and see you on Saturday!

Here’s my attempt at a Music Genre Poem:

“i love pop”

sweet as soda
with a beat that drops
baby i love
listening to pop

whether 80s
disco or dubstep
something 'bout it
gives my life more pep
