Put your music player on shuffle, and write down the first line of the first twenty songs. Post the poem that results. The first line of the twenty-first song is the title.
Against the Law to Talk about the Rocket In the Park
Hey you, hey you, devil’s little sister,
Can’t close my eyes
Goodday sunlight, I’d like to say how truely bright you are.
They want to see me cry,
I’m searching for my god.
I must be brave, come, come what may.
Ring around the roses,
Something takes a part of me.
My shadows, shedding skin and
Slow nights, so long
Send me an angel.
The sky is fallin’
Don’t fret precious, I’m here, step away from the window.
Well you done done me and ya know I felt it.
Hello darkness my old friend
Oh say please do not go.
If you want to know how to fly high,
She is the day that gives me time.
