This week’s prompt: your parents’ slogans
Make a list of the phrases your mother and father – or maybe your grandparents – always used on you as a kid. Could be phrases you hated or loved… could be good or bad jokes that came over and over again… anything that had a repetition factor in your parents’ personal thesaurus.
Now write a poem using at least 5 of them. The poem can be serious or funny – up to you!
If you feel courageous, observe your own repetitious slogans… make a list and write a poem about them. If you can’t think of any, ask your siblings or children.
