Poetry Prompt 42 – Reprimand

write a poem which someone is reprimanded

Today’s prompt is to write a poem which someone is reprimanded.

You might like to consider:

  • Is there someone or something you would like to tell off?
  • Could you draw on your own experiences or those of a friend?
  • How can you strike a tone which adequately captures the seriousness (or otherwise) of the reprimand?
  • In what way is the person reprimanded?
  • Is it fair?
  • What is their response?

Happy reading, happy writing -and if you do write, don’t forget to post your poem (in full or as a link) in the comments below so we can all enjoy it.

      Of course! There are no rules… I’m just off to read your poem now, I’m very behind as I’m daftly busy at the moment (book manuscript due in in September and I’ve recently realised it won’t write itself you see…)

    How could you take it into mind
    To choose a prompt that’s so unkind?
