Monday Poetry Prompt 07/11/16

Every Monday, I post a writing prompt for poets. The big rule is you only have 20 minutes to write! I know it doesn’t seem like a lot of time, but trust me it’ll be great.

The poem should include:

  • A former President (or whoever you’re voting for)
  • A quote of something she/he said
  • A response to that quote
  • Every sentence must begin with the same word.
  • At least 20 lines
  • And the words: forward, never, water, leave, moment, will.

Bonus points if you can get everything in!
