November Poem-a-Day: Day 10

Prompt: For today’s prompt, take the phrase “(blank) Trouble,” replace the blank with a word or phrase, make the new phrase the title of your poem, and write the poem. Possible titles include: “Big Trouble,” “Double Trouble,” and “That Guy Is Trouble.” I hope you don’t have too much trouble getting started.


Drowning trouble

There are times when times are tough
When trouble crashes the gates
When you progress from feeling fine
To sinking into the direst of straits

This is when the tables get turned
So you’ll need to burst a bubble
Sit back, relax, and prepare to chill
It’s time to drown your trouble
