Writing Prompt #43

Writing prompt #43: Write a poem using three of the following words: expensive, lampshade, bruise, convincing.


How do I even start this piece?

It’s going to be hard to even try to rhyme something with expensive

Let me try and find a sentence

That will be convincing

To the human eye that’s reading this odd piece

Sometimes I just like to play with these words like dr sues

Just trying to figure out what a lampshade is, is giving my brain a bruise

I need some type of clue

Forget it I’ll just use google

The soft cover on a lamp

Duh I should have known

Just like you should have known I used all 4 words already
