November Poem a Day (PAD) Challenge 2023: Day 6
This November I will be presenting to you a month of daily poems as memoir, little ditties to tell you about my day or my thoughts during the day, whatever. Of course I hope you enjoy them, but it’s ok if you don’t. Just move on to the next blog in your list.
Day six is: “For today’s prompt, take the phrase “Better (blank),” replace the blank with a new word or phrase, make the new phrase the title of your poem, and then, write your poem. Possible titles might include: “Better Watch Out,” “Better Late Than Never,” “Better Luck Next Time,” and/or “Better You Than Me.” Better get poeming!”
Better Watch Out
Who me, cry?
I wouldn’t even shout
over the rooftops
clattering along the snow line,
nose red in the cold.
I’ll tell you why.
Someone is coming,
Coming to a fireplace near you
Hope you’ve behaved.
Best brick up the chimney
Or hide the cookies and milk.
Keep the man out of your business
And just go to bed until next year.
