I am student teaching a senior level class in Washington, DC. They have to write some poems on these prompts. I decided to try all 30 of them. However, I will not say what the prompt was but what its number was.
Wasps and Honeybees live in the garden republic
Where all of the winged beasts frolic as citizens
Coming from a common heritage, common fathers
Seeking all that matters crystalized as principles
Without a care to who was dunked by which baptists
Or where the translucent wings may settle in any congregationalist
Setting that can be called in the oldest of senses catholic
Because the apes republica can be in harmony
Due to the shared common welfare
That isn’t as hued in talk lutheran.
