OctPoWriMo Day 11: Note to Self

OctPoWriMo Day 11: Note to Self


The inspiration for today’s poem is Day 2‘s prompt: poems and notes to you. The form is tanka, five lines with a 5-7-5-7-7 syllable rhythm scheme. My last line would fit the rules perfectly if I left the third word of the last line as men, but I wouldn’t want anyone to think they shouldn’t vote for a woman of good character.



Note to Self

Election Day approaches
Do due diligence
