I took a poet to lunch today.

Every day at work my boss my boss titles her group chat by the name of whatever “holiday “it happens to be. Yesterday was take a poet to lunch today. On my break I wrote this poem.

I took a poet to lunch today.

I took a poet to lunch today

And there amid the verse ,

Our flow of thought was free and light 
Not stifled, bland, or terse.
I took a poet to lunch today 
we traded quip for quip
 She scrawled a sonnet on her check 
And left it with her tip.
If you can’t take a poet  to lunch 
Please do not wear a frown 
We all write poems in our own way 
And some , just write them down.
