The net is a world wide web wonder
Where many fine stories are born
Not to mention the sparks of ideas
In amongst all the HD-shot porn
Imagine you’ve landed on Saturn
Prompts a site with a sciencey slant
Your oxygen’s low, and your heart rate is slow
and your co-pilot’s cat is your aunt
Or, picture the scene if you’re able…
You’ve just woken up on a train.
With a fresh ink tattoo and a badger (or two)
And a driver who might be called Wayne
Some sites keep it pleasantly simple
And offer you one simple word
Like blender or boffin or cupcake or coffin
But never curmudgeon or turd
If that’s not enough throw in genre
And wordcount and timeframe and such
In less than an hour your cowboy themed badger
Is perfect, but ten words too much
O Word Prompting Sites, I salute you!
My life without you would be worse
I cogitate wholly and agonize slowly
Then ignore you and write a daft verse.
