Day #10

National Poetry Month: Day #10

The prompt for today was interesting: “write your own advertisement-poem…You don’t need to advertise Burma-Shave. Any product (or idea) will do.”

I wrote two-for-the-price-of-one ads. Note: Ditty is sung to the tune of “London Bridges Falling Down”.

Monsanto Roundup
does it all,
does it all,
does it all.
Monsanto Roundup
does it all;
kills all creatures
large and small.

Buy Monsanto: at Monsanto we kill all things equally.

******************

Butterfly and
buzzing bee,
crawling ant,
tiny flea.
Monsanto Roundup
does it all;
kills all creatures
large and small.

Shop for equality: buy Monsanto.

About cjpjordan

A poet, a writer, an artist, a thinker, a musician and occasionally a skeptic, when I'm not teaching or traveling, I love to read and write and play the ukelele. I'm loving life with my Little Wonder--his energy and joy for life is contagious. He makes me believe and hope again. I don't want to forget these moments that pass so quickly so I have decided to write them down for posterity and for you to enjoy.
