Campaigning in Poetry

I found this on January's blog


Former New York Governer Cuomo once said: "You campaign in poetry; you govern in prose."

You are invited to compose variations on Cuomo's text and post your responses here.

You ______________ in poetry; you ______________ in prose.

OR

You campaign in ____________ ; you govern in ______________.

Feel free to post more than once, post on your own blog, distribute this text to others, collect versions of these sentences from people you meet, and post those here, too.

The responses are to be as spontaneous as possible. Maybe this is the start of that political poem you've always wanted to write.

Good luck!

Here are mine:


You line-dance in poetry; you march forward in prose.

You drink tea in poetry; you drink coffee in prose.

You wear a lace doily in poetry; you wear a cotton tablecloth in prose.

You treat or treat for Unicef in poetry; you trick or treat for full-sized candy bars in prose.

You Joan Jett in poetry; you Pat Benatar in prose.
