Poetry Prompt 55 – Controversial

write a poem which addresses a topic people usually choose not to talk about

Today’s prompt is to write a poem which addresses a topic people usually choose not to talk about.

You might like to consider:

  • What topic should you cover
  • Is the topic important to you? Why?
  • Why don’t people normally talk about it? How do they usually respond if it comes up?
  • What do you hope to achieve with your poem? To start conversations? To break down stigma? To show your stance on a topic?
  • Should you reel the reader in by only mentioning the taboo topic towards the end?

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.

    I could write about a bottom,
    But a rhyme for that won’t come,
    Or perhaps about some excrement? –
    Still can’t find a rhyme to fit!
