The Prompt for the NaPoWriMo today is,
Our own prompt for today should be a little simpler. (As always, the prompts are optional). Once upon a time, poetry was regularly used in advertisements, most notably the Burma-Shave ads:
Said Farmer Brown
Who’s bald on top
“Wish I could
Rotate the crop”
Burma-Shave
Or
She put a bullet
Through his hat
But he’s had closer
Shaves than that
Burma-Shave
Today, I challenge you to write your own advertisement-poem. You don’t need to advertise Burma-Shave. Any product (or idea) will do. Perhaps you could write a poem advertising poetry? It certainly could use the publicity! On that note, let me leave you until tomorrow with this paen to the virtues of advertisement:
The codfish lays ten thousand eggs,
The homely hen lays one.
The codfish never cackles
To tell you what she’s done-
And so we scorn the codfish
While the humble hen we prize.
It only goes to show you
That it pays to advertise!

Also, tagging this post to #atozchallenge.


Also, I don’t know whether I have been completely able to do justice to today’s prompt. But this is what I chose to write, which is straight from the heart.


Joyce I write
Pondering Two I pour
Words that ignite
The Love and Passion for more
Lovely, Beautiful and Fantastic
Adjectives showered upon
Makes me tick
On and on
Seeing my stories in print
I feel pleased
Imprints after imprints
Work and passion squeezed
Without your constant Love
Wouldn’t have been possible
Thank you; over and above
I pledge to be humble
Hope you connect
With me and my writings
Be it on twitter or FB
