Written for: Poetic Asides April 2017 Challenge – Day 15
For today’s prompt, write a “one time” poem. This poem could be about a once in a lifetime experience. Or it could be about something a person wants to try just one time (good or bad). Or take it where you will–as always.
You have won a Caribbean cruise.
(there was no way I could lose)
You have been selected for a grant.
(me and every uncle and aunt)
You are our 500th customer, you won a giraffe.
(don’t make me laugh)
Publisher’s Clearing House calling, you won.
(I didn’t enter; I’m stunned)
Once in my life, it would be nice
to get something for nothing.
