The Daily Post’s Daily Prompt 2/18/2016 | Mad Libs

Turn to your co-workers, kids, Facebook friends, family — anyone who’s accessible — and ask them to suggest an article, an adjective, and a noun. There’s your post title! Now, write.”

Well… I made the mistake of asking Kyle to do this with me, since no one on Twitter wanted to respond, and got… The. Blue. Policeman. Here goes…

The Blue Policeman

Policeman Stan walked down the empty blocks
In the beating heart of Kalamazoo,
Where he passed by shops that sold antique clocks,
And grimaced from the stone stuck in his shoe.

In the distance, he saw a paper mill,
Which once was the pride of the avenue,
Yet now stood tall and dark, in the night still,
Just left abandoned, in a city new.

And as he gawked, he did not stop to think
About the path spread beneath his own feet,
Where an unused container of blue ink
Sat, waiting, dangerously in the street.

It only took one pace, and then he knew,
But then it was too late, and Stan was blue.

Thanks for reading friends! 😉
