For today's prompt, write a short poem. Usually, I provide more context and possibilities for interpretation, but I'll leave it up to you this week, and that's the long and the short of it.
Remember: These prompts are springboards to creativity. Use them to expand your possibilities, not limit them.

he had the short end
of the stick,
but he tricked
them all with the longest stick
he could ever find.
