November Poem-a-Day: Day 14

Prompt: For today’s prompt, write a follow poem. In middle school, I remember running for student council and my campaign manager said something to the effect of, “Vote for Robby, because he’s a follower, not a leader.” First thing, yes, they called me Robby in middle school. Second thing, yes, I did not get elected. Third thing, yes, this story is completely personal and pointless. Don’t follow my example.


Follower

You’re leading again
He whispers
Trying to wrangle
Wild clumsy me
While I watch,
Anticipating every step
Wrong.

    Is all the proof I need
    To be a satisfied
