Describe a donut and fool the people
They’re paid to be upset
Throw them in the snake pit
Go play on the freeway and
Take your damned meatloaf with you
We’ll get a court order and force you
Break a leg tampering with a horse
Drag yourself another twenty feet, and
It comes out a pretzel
An honest man knows he’s lying
It proves nothing
Does this ring a bell?
Day Thirteen of 2016 NaPoWriMo.
The Day Thirteen prompt from napowrimo.net for 2016 NaPoWriMo is to write a poem inspired by fortune cookies, as in using phrases from fortune cookies. My found poem is a twist on the prompt. I’ve used quotes from the movie The Fortune Cookie (found at imdb.com), although I’ve played a little loosely with those quotes.
