Survey Says

Written for:  Poetic Asides, Prompt #464
For today’s prompt, write a survey poem. Answering survey questions may sound like a boring poem, but I’m sure someone can come up with a fun version of that poem. But there’s more a poet can do. Since we’re at the end of the year, a poet could survey the previous year. Or survey options for a career change, parenting solutions, or other personal decisions. It is a verb and a noun, but check out the Merriam-Webster definition if you need more ideas.

Wrapping 2018 in a black bow,
this year brought some mighty blows.
Tired of hearing statistics
on state of our country, just fix it.
Surveys show percentages and charts
but not people struggles or broken hearts.
I have surveyed this year
and found it lacking.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
