Poetry Challenge #95

Cuckoo for Coconuts!!

Hooray! Hooray! It’s National Pina Colada Day!                                   pina colada.jpg

So, whether you do or do not like getting caught in the rain . . .

Whether you are or are not into health foods or champagne . . .

Regardless of your opinion about waking up at midnight—

Let’s put the lime in the coconut and bust out in poetry! Pul-lee-e-e-e-sa!* PLEEESE!

Thinking coconuts, tropical islands, pineapples ripe for the plucking, and cuckoo birds write a poem. And yes, because the notion that there even is a National Pina Colada Day is slightly cuckoo, use as many words as you can think of which include the letters C and O in that order. If you really want to cut loose, try including a bird call or two!

Set the timer for 7 minutes.

Start writing!

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