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.
