Last week, I was in The Champion of Champions Slam, and decided I would write a series of new pieces for it. One of them involved the idiot who was climbing Trump Tower. I wrote it before all the facts were in, and assumed it was some sort of protest, and not the actions of a Trump enthusiast. I rewrote the poem as the night went on, and it inspired the following prompt: Write about a historical event before all the information was in. An ode to the Titanic's successful maiden voyage. What helpful psychiatrist Bruce Willis was in The Sixth Sense.
Bonus prompt: A couple of nights ago my apartment was invaded by three recently de-housed bats (I originally thought there were five because they were sneaky and flying back and forth between a room I thought had been sealed off). I mocked my cats for not making any attempts to catch the bats or even interact with them but, actually, if the bats had been rabid and the cats Had interacted with them, they could have caught rabies, which is 100% fatal in cats.
Write about a time when being lazy or simply not acting has saved your life.
