For today's prompt, write a stretch poem. Of course, your poem could involve a big morning stretch and yawn...or relate your stretching to exercise. But it could also be about the stretching of a rubber band or stretching out to grab something just out of reach. Also, some people may lie about something they did or didn't do, but others just "stretch the truth," or so they say.
Remember: These prompts are springboards to creativity. Use them to expand your possibilities, not limit them.

Here’s my attempt at a Stretch Poem:
The doc said I needed to stretch,
because I was not flexible.
In fact, he said I was a wretch,
and I really needed to stretch,
because I was the perfect sketch
of what rigid was possible.
But I told him that I can't stretch,
because I'm not that flexible.
