Today’s prompt is to write a poem in the form of a news article you wish would come out tomorrow.

Mine is a news flash.

Storm cloud and rainbow
Breaking News

This just in—
A whirlwind touched down 
in a Louisiana town
recently devastated by flood waters.
The winds dried out all the water damage,
applied fresh paint and new roofs to all the houses,
scraped away all the accumulated mud,
and replanted all the landscaping.

This just in—
The Mar-a-Lago resort announced
that it’s been converted
to temporary housing
for Honduran refugees.

This just in—
A huge crowd
of Black people
and Native Americans
and Latinos
and Asians
and white people
marched to the Capitol
with picnic baskets
and had a huge block party on the lawn
with plenty of food for everyone.
