Annoying Advice Poetry Prompt (Limerick and Haiku Prompt 1)
I’ve been having so much fun drawing inspiration from poetry prompts, that I thought I’d launch my own. And since I’m seriously (and unseriously) into limericks and haiku, I’m focusing on those two forms.
Your assignment, should you choose to accept it, is to write a limerick or haiku (or both) on this week’s theme: Annoying Advice. When your poem’s taken root, please return to this post and add a direct link to your themed poem.
Here’s my Annoying Advice limerick:
By Madeleine Begun Kane
“Keep your chin up, and things will be fine.
Just act brave. Do not bitch, flinch, or whine.
You have the right stuff.
You just have to hang tough.”
Does anyone fall for that line?
And here’s my Annoying Advice haiku:
When somebody says
“You sure you want to do that?”
Doubt perversely fades.
UPDATE: Happy Cliché Day, November 3rd!
