Poetry Challenge #48

Hump Day!

Lots of things have humps. Quickly list as many as you can. Here’s a few to set you thinking:

Hills have humps, whales have humps, camels, too—some one, some two—the Hunchback of Notre Dame had a huge hump which caused him pain, shame & ultimately fame.

Write a poem about one of the humps you listed, or the hump itself. And since the reward following the long trudge up to the end of Wednesday is sliding through Thursday toward the weekend. Bonus points if you shape your poem so it looks like a slide.

Set the timer for 7 minutes.

Start writing!

Don’t think about it too much; just do it.
