It’s the thirteenth day of GloPoWriMo and today’s prompt was to write a poem in which the words or meaning of a familiar phrase get up-ended. For example, if you chose the phrase “A stitch in time saves nine”, you might reverse that into something like: “a broken thread; I’m late, so many lost”. Or “It’s raining cats and dogs” might prompt the phrase “Snakes and lizards evaporate into the sky”. Those are both rather haunting, strange images, and exploring them could provide you with an equally haunting, strange poem (or a funny one)!
Here is my effort. I hope you enjoy it.
