Here’s a short, light poem which I wrote this morning in response to the following poetry prompt:
Write a seven-line poem about one of the 7 Sins that only contains seven words in each of the lines.
I ended up writing eight lines, plus I wrote about all the sins instead of just one (couldn’t pick a favourite). However, breaking the rules in a poem about sinning seems appropriate.
p.s. the prompt came from this list , which has lots of excellent ideas to help combat writer’s block.
Trip Advisor Review: Seven Sins Cruises
Four stars. Recommended to those who need
a quick cobweb shake before morality resumes!
Wrath closed for maintenance, frustratingly, but Lust
buffet delicious: took mine to my room.
Envy amazing – wanted it all to myself!
Could’ve done with more Greed, considering price.
Loved Pride – was a natural – (sorry, bragging).
Didn’t bother with Sloth; did Gluttony twice.
