ROBERT LEE BREWER’S WEDNESDAY POETRY PROMPT.
For today’s prompt, write a framily poem. That’s not a typo. I’m thinking framily: friends and family (you know, like Sprint’s framily phone plan?). Okay, it’s a little silly using the word “framily,” but when have I avoided silly? Write a poem that involves (or is inspired by) your friends and family. Everyone should have a good story to tell, whether it’s funny, sad, serious, etc.
By John Yeo
The coach sped through the dark night,
We were on the way to grieve,
Sadness had gripped the dying embers
When Grandfather passed away.
Many people gathered to mourn his flight,
To wish him well, now he had taken his leave.
The get-together, the homily, everyone remembers.
A fine man with his humorous way.
Friends and family gathered, to respect his wishes.
A solemn occasion, the priest began to read
These words were his testament from beyond,
Addressed to us all as we waited.
My dear friends and family, I have no issues,
To leave. I love you all and I say God-speed!
Be as happy as I was, I love you together,
MY FRAMILY, I love you all still.
