NaPoWriMo2021 Day Three


Today’s prompt is to make a Personal Universal Deck, select two cards, and use the words to construct a poem. The words on the two cards I drew were sour, chaos, sharp, and clap.

sarcastic responses to 
my suggestions for improvements not 
the applause I expected for my incisive
analysis of the chaos that besets our 
production processes

i detest business
politics that obstruct any
progress that threatens the
status quo repeating the
same actions produces identical
results insisting otherwise is

once again my proposal will
optimize our manufacturing 
procedure creating enhanced
quality with greater
productivity at lower
cost no down

expressions sharp
criticism the sound of
one hand clapping

  1. Do you agree that thinking of all the words and making the cards was harder than writing the poem? Now, what do I do with all the scraps of paper? I think we need to draw for our friends and send them the words!
