Take Them Off!

NaPoWriM0 2022 – April 19

Today’s challenge is to write a poem that starts with a command. It could be as uncomplicated as “Look,” as plaintive as “Come back,” or as silly as “Don’t you even think about putting that hot sauce in your hair.” Whatever command you choose, I hope you have fun ordering your readers around.


Take Them Off!

The Judge has Spoken.

The Masks of Oppression
The Masks of Protection

Who’s to say
Whether they
Bind Us
or
Save Us?

Or if they do both?

Whether we WILL
or
Whether we MUST

Take Them Off

Depends not only upon
What you believe
About
Your
Mask

But about
Their
Masks
As
Well.

Who is the Weakest Link?

Take Them Off?

I
Think
Not.
