Today’s prompt: Take the phrase “Let’s (blank),” replace the blank with a word or phrase, make the new phrase the title of your poem, and then, write your poem.
Let’s Take the Day Off
Let’s draw a thick black line
Under this undesirable day
And map out another instead
Where there is only white space
Just waiting for our timid hands
To schedule in our own desires
As opposed to our supposed duties
That enslave us by the hour.
Let’s take the day off
And force our toiling feet
Off the long-beaten track
To see what adventures hide
Out of the corner of our weary eyes,
And we may still yet find
Our long lost original selves
Unchained from this cell of same old.
