2012 April PAD Challenge: Day 12


For today’s prompt, take the phrase “Something (blank),” replace the blank with a word or phrase, make the new phrase the title of your poem, and then, write the poem. Example titles might include: “Something New,” “Something Strange,” “Something at the End of This Book,” or “Something Something.”

"Something Missing"

There's something missing.
My ass you should be kissing,
for gifting you the blessing,
of a seventy-one
But you're still drifting
lost and sifting
oblivious and missing,
the point.
Earned not by passing,
but by your total lacking,
and my personal stacking
of time.
Beware of Greeks bearing,
gifts that seem sparing
for the moments really sharing,
apathy.
