Oulipost #9 – Headlines

Compose a poem whose body is sourced from article headlines in your newspaper.

Only a Drill

Learning can be a
painful experience.
Indy avoids hard
conversations about
guns and violence.

This is only a drill.

How do we like it now?
Teen charged as
adult. The right fit?

Hope rises in
the midst of violence
in Indy, how do we
like it now? Learning
can be a painful
experience. This
is only a drill.
