Monday Poetry Prompt: Especially, Sale, Spirit

This week let’s do another three random words prompt. I rolled the dice and got “especially”, “sale” and “spirit”. Write a poem using all three words and post the result in the comments below.

  1. The Poor and The Rich Support Each Other

    Charity ball is a perfect sale network opportunity
    especially for semi drunken business representatives
    All deals achieved spring from seemingly innocent chitchatting
    in the high spirit of supporting those in need

    I painted the letters
    in dirty green and bubble gum pink
    on the backs of sale posters.
    Damn this cheap paint.
    All this economic distress
    makes it hard to pep anyone up.
    Still, the Highland Hornets
    are going to fly tonight.
    especially our star Hunter Mackly.
    He was worth all the trouble.

  4. Look at the bargains
    especially on the bling
    crushing our spirit

  5. Shopping is the last thing I enjoy
    some people are spirited that way
    they love to shop and plan big trips
    if have no issues around their thing
    but find me a sale on ice cream,
    especially the king I like,
    and used books and coffee,
    and I am ready to go
    of course there is the internet
    then, let the sales begin

  6. I walked into town to stretch my legs a bit
    Especially on such a beautiful day
    Just to window shop, which is my way
    Of saving money or at least not spending
    But one shop called me to a huge, lucky sale
    I knew it would lift my spirit, never does it fail
    And help this small business, too.
