Way To Go

 Happy Nov. 1st!

For today’s prompt, we’ve actually got a two-for-Tuesday prompt. So pick one, combine both prompts into one poem, or write two (or more) different poems. Here are the prompts:
  • Write a stay poem. A poem about staying put, not leaving, and/or dealing with someone (or something) that refuses to leave. Or…
  • Write a go poem. Fans of The Clash probably know which song prompted today’s prompt. But yeah, this is basically the opposite of staying–you know, going.

Stay, go
Ebb, flow
Yes, oh,

Dark, light
Wrong, right
May, might
Beg, fight

Tip, spill
Empty, fill
Hollow, hill
Heat, chill

Shoes, socks
News, clocks
Keys, locks
Trees, rocks

Stand, sit
Rest a bit
But don’t quit
Just do it

Bloom, fade
Broom, spade
 Bought, made
Hoard, trade 

Sing, dance
Bring aunts
Take a chance 

Dirty, clean
Flirty, mean
Pretty, preen

Do, don't
Will, won't
Should, shan't
Could, can't

Love, hate
Settle, debate
Hurry, wait
Early, late 

Drive, walk
Be quiet, talk
Compliant, balk
Book, dock
May, must

Coast, crash 
Pause, dash
Keep, trash

Nope, tried
Cope, glide
Hope, hide
Steamed, fried

Take, leave
Braid, weave
Break, grieve
Wake, heave

Fast, slow
High, low
Stay, no
I must go

Crawl, fly,
Laugh, cry
Shout, sigh
Live, die
