Day 21 of National Poetry Writing Month! Almost there. Almost. *sniff*
Today’s prompt: An erasure poem! It occurs to me now that it would have been fun to just pick one of the many research articles on my computer and erase words. But maybe it would have ended up being a poem that goes like this: “Girls/reading/empowerment/gender/future”. Just kidding.
Instead, I went to Wikipedia and hit the “Random article” button. I ended up with the Canadian politician Clarence Gillis, so let’s see how he turns into a poem:
Bread and Butter
Canadian Cape born underground
Steel and Coal infantry in the War
returned official helped becoming
affiliate east of the House,
leading voice championing achievement
securing the Strait defeated leader
acting lieutenant rose represented
attacked butter amongst enlistment
needy butter allow them to vote
Nova Maime Theresa
PS: If you do this, choose an article about food.
