April 22, 2020: Poetry Writing Prompt – Robert Wynne

This poetry writing prompt submitted by Robert Wynne:
As long as I can remember, I have hated flossing my teeth. I know it’s important for proper dental hygiene, but I dread the whole process. I once opened a poem with the words “I never floss…” and then went on to describe the wonders of a dentist’s waiting room. Think of something you know you should do, but that you don’t enjoy at all, and you either don’t ever do it, or not as often as you know you should. Then write a poem confessing this, and exploring the results of your tendencies. Feel free to even imagine wild consequences which could occur. And be sure to incorporate humor.
If you write a poem from this prompt, post it as a comment underneath the prompt in the Poetry Super Highway Facebook Group.
