PROMPT #175 – “GETTING TO WORK”
Write a poem about an inanimate object getting ready to perform its function.
Is this guy crazy?
It’s damn cold out there!
There’s a foot of snow
and he expects me too throw
it over there? I’m a slow starter
when it’s cold out. I’d rather
be a hold out, but he’s ready to blow!
I’ve got to go. This sidewalk
isn’t going to clear itself!
