Back home today from the "Des Moines reading" road trip with my buddy Grant. Thanks again to Marc Dickinson for being such an excellent host.
Okay, day four. Fearless reader Robert Lee Brewer says,"For today’s prompt, take the phrase, '100% (blank)'; replace the blank with a new word or phrase; make the new phrase the title of your poem; and then, write your poem. Example titles might include: '100% Beef,' '100% Cotton,' '100% Awesome,' '100% Etc.'"
Here's my 100% contribution, friends. Enjoy.
Gratitude goes out to Alan Eggleston for the help I got from his excellent website How to Slay a Cliché. And mad props as well to Steve Lautenschlager for providing such a peerless list of thousands of clichés in his Cliché Web. Speaking of clichés, "mad props" is swiftly becoming one, isn't it? If it isn't already. Check out The Maven breaking down the phrase "mad props."
Here's today's poem by Lady Catherine, Princess of Pritchard, Duchess of Childress.
And those are today's 100% poems, 100% made of words, straight from our 100% hearts and 100% minds.
Please give us your 100% comments below in the 100% comment box. Good night, sweet poets. See you on day five.
