Written for: Poetic Asides 2018 April PAD Challenge – Day 18
Write a temptation poem.
A poster glued to building’s wall,
so large in glare of midday sun.
I heard the magic marker’s call.
A mustache would be loads of fun
to draw on such a sneering face;
I would sketch it with great aplomb.
Perhaps a beard? Not out of place,
or pair of spectacles might do
to cover vacant eyes that glaze
over when questioned without a clue.
Last of all, an ear-muff hat
to distract from a bad hairdo.
Oh, I really must have at
that orange face of blandness.
Lend me a marker, it’s an art attack.
