Revolting Poetry

Halfway through the Poetic Asides November poem-a-day challenge, I am suffering from prompt fatigue:  I’ve written something  for today’s prompt, which was “Just when I thought it was safe to…”  but another poem is clamouring to be written and let out to play.
Watch this space. Today’s reluctant effort:

      Poetry Revolt

 Just when I thought I was getting the hang of this poetry lark
he chucks a prompt into the ring  that leaves me wordless.
I want to write something else today. What?  you ask.
Anything  at  all  that   comes into  my  head
that makes it worthwhile to get out of bed.
I’m on strike, I’m rebellious.
This poem is going nowhere.
What the Hellious

    LOL! Brilliant – and you say what I’m sure we’re all feeling at this point. But we’ll get through it – remember napowrimo?


  2. Poetry Revolt, new title?
    What the Hellious, hilarious. The way you can turn your lack of stimulation into a poem in and of itself, that’s one of the reasons I subscribe to you, Viv, as well as your ongoing memoir…

    Love, Amy BL
