Tick, Tock, Tick, Tock

Poetic Asides – Poem-A-Day Challenge – Day 15 Prompt:

Soooo...let's get to today's prompt, which is a "Two for Tuesday" prompt actually.

Prompt #1: Write an
insult poem. There aren't really any rules attached to the insult poem, but it's usually done in good fun. If you write one, you can often open yourself up to a retaliatory insult poem. And that can lead to the equivalent of an insult poetry food fight.

Prompt #2: I've been trying to avoid mentioning it, but today is Tax Day here in the States. So it's time to either file them taxes or file for an extension--or just continue procrastinating, I guess ("Whatever floats your boat," as my father would always say.). Anyway, the second prompt is to write a poem that deals with paying your taxes and/or meeting deadlines.

Deadlines

make me
panic
make me freeze
make me want
to do my laundry
run my
dishwasher
count the ceiling tiles
anything but write
deadline
pressure
delay and fret
until the
last
possible
moment
and
then submit
then there’s
the whole
word count issue
don’t even
get me
started on that
