The prompt I chose this week for Mama Kat's Writer's Workshop? Write a poem about the last person you spoke to on the phone, based on the conversation you had.
I answered the telephone when it rang today,
on the other end? A woman from the NRA
Warning me that our 2nd Amendment rights are lost
No freedom to bear arms, lest we pay the cost
Of a monthly required donation, to ensure that they
Can send a gaggle of lobbyists to Congress TODAY!
The woman was persistent, I’ll give her that
But my money? No, I think I like my wallet fat
Risking anarchy, and taking our rights away
I refused her reasonable offer, and sent her on her way
To the next number in her list, that job just can’t be fun
She ticked me off and made me mad - how I wished I’d had a gun!
