April 21, 2014

The Prompt:Craft a conversation poem using “he said/she said” quotes that you find in newspaper articles.



 

Food for Thought

 

Back with a vengeance,

The KFC Double Down Sandwich!

a college-age guy yells.

 

We actually did this last year

With 24 hours notice, she said.

 

He yelled, Two pieces of KFC chicken,

two sizzling strips of bacon,

two pieces of cheese

and the Colonel’s sauce!

 

We had a huge turnout

and decided to do it again

this year, she said.

 

He said, If you get the right weather in here

this is usually wall-to-wall. Usually

we’d have crickets by this time of the year.

 

We want to show that we

are a strong community, she said,

that in times of tragedy

we will persevere and come together

to remember.

 

I like to sell bait, guns, hunt, fish,

he said.
