Poetry Prompt #14 – 30 poems in 30 days challenge

Today’s prompt is to write a poem in which every sentence, except for the last one, is in the form of a question. That’s it! It can be as long or short as you like. The questions can be deep and philosophical (‘what is the meaning of life?’) or routine and practical (‘are you going to eat that?’). Or both! (from http://www.napowrimo.net/)

    Did you know they named a bridge after you?
    What do you think of Camden today?
    What was it like being a Civil War nurse?
    How did you deal with being gay in the 19th Century?
    What was Oscar Wilde like?
    Who were your favorite poets?
    When did you decide not to rhyme?
    What do you think of rap?
    Where did you like to go for dinner?
    Did your beard get itchy in the summer?
    Where did you get that floppy hat?
    Why did you only write one book of poetry?
    Can I get your autograph?
    Then he’d sign my copy of Leaves of Grass,
    and show me the door.

    When will the snow melt?

    How will I stop the flood?
