Prompt: Why did you do it?
Source: Imagination Prompt Generator
Response: The Freaking Thing
I admit it - I did it -
I put it off until the last day and now
I'm stuck writing this paper
tonight . . . hopefully . . . maybe.
But you see
the dishes weren't done
and the clothes weren't washed.
Posters had to be made
and other homework had to be done.
My prompt response wasn't written and
I had to make a birthday cake.
The house was disgusting and my grandparents were coming
and I had to write a Sunday school lesson.
So I loaded the dishwasher and folded the clothes.
I hand-drew big posters until my back ached and
my other homework (kinda) got worked on.
I'm working on my prompt obligation and the birthday cake volcano was a
smash hit. The house is clean
and the grandparents are here and I'm prepared to teach.
Now I'm gonna stay up until 4 AM
and write this freaking thing.
Notes: I'm very overwhelmed, yes I am. I didn't actually do any laundry today and my mom actually made the birthday cake (call it literary licence), but yeah, I'm overwhelmed.
This poem has uneven margins (and therefore looks way cooler) in the project. Just FYI.
