The prompt for day six’s PAD Chapbook Challenge is “medias res” which is a story that begins in the middle. Sometimes you’re inspired. Sometimes just tired. And as the man says? Well, I don’t really know. I’m just waiting for it to be over.
In medias res Of this election for Pres, When will this counting be over? I lie in the bed Overwhelmed with a dread To get up I throw off the cover. When I check the news: Only pundits and their views I lie back, pull the sheet, roll over. It’s gone on all year, So turn off the lights, Dear, And wake me up when this is over.
