For this week’s prompt, write an object poem. Pick an object and write about it. Or pick an object and make it a central piece of your poem. Or pick an object and make it the title. Or pick an object and write an acrostic. Or come up with some other way to combine an object with your poem.
The object of the exercise is to be
As uncontroversial as ever,
To write a poem that reflects
An objectionable object, whenever
One has an earthy need, to free
The bowels from a blockage, wherever
The need for relief arises.
To find oneself in a situation
Where the object is not available,
To fulfil the need for evacuation
Can be really quite uncomfortable.
To ponder the problem of the shortage
Of these objects for general use,
People on high sit on the throne
Write poetry and generally muse.
