Monday Poetry Prompt: Mergers


This week, let’s write a merger poem. If you’re like me, you have more unfinished poems lazing around your hard drive than finished ones. Take two more-or-less at random and trying merging them together then post the amalgamation in the comments below.

  1. for some reason, unexplainable, I decided to merge time with simile:

    Bad Time to Simile

    Time will never come full circle
    like a broken clock

    Time will never catch me
    like the bad guys in “Road Warrior”

    Time is the past and present
    like your great-aunt’s fruitcake

    Time can be a stitch that saves 9
    like 9 can’t save its confabulous self

    Time to quit while I’m behind
    like the poetry police with handcuffs

  2. Great idea. I’ve just deleted some old junk and cleaned up a bit of the junk in there. Very inspiring! 😉
