PAD Challenge Day 11: Free Verse
PAD Day 11
Prompt 11: Write a defensive poem.
It’s a pen’s privilege to write.And it’s a poet’s right
to plead the fifth,
to object the nonsense and the deceptive,
take heed to all motions,
appeal how they feel without eye witnesses
and a burden of proof,
and the extremity of penalties or negotiations---
to sustain a lifetime sentence in freedom of speech.
So, without further ado,
please do not judge this law of poetry.
