Here’s a prompt that most of the USA can identify with. I gleaned it from the current issue of Writer’s Digest.
Write an overextended poem. That is, write a poem about someone or something being stretched too thin. For instance a co-worker with too much work to do or a balloon being filled with air to the point that it is about to pop.
Being in the kitchen most of the day definitely influenced my attempt!
Like salad with too little dressing,
we make our lives unpalatable.
Like Saran wrap stretched too tightly
Ready to split at the next gentle tug.
Please let me know what you come up with!
