Quickly Prompted

This one was to re-write a certain poem. I didn't want to do it. I considered skipping it since this is only prompt #18 and the current prompt is in the 30s. Then, of course, I had a lot of fun dashing this off.

This is just to say
I was home when you called
The phone rang
And I got to it in plenty of time.

I had my glasses
I read the caller ID
But Fringe was on
And Josh Jackson was talking

I hope you left a message
He’ll stop soon
I guess.

    Wonderful! This particular exercise has been done many times before by many people - you did a great job, and you made it very personal to you in the process!

    And might I add, you were one of the few people doing this prompt that actually got it right, but that's easy for me to say, as I didn't even attempt it :-)
