November Poem-a-Day: Day 15

For today’s prompt, take the phrase “Holy (blank),” replace the blank with a word or phrase, make the new phrase the title of your poem, and then, write your poem. I like to think of this as the “Robin prompt” from the old Adam West Batman shows, because Robin would always make exclamations that began with “Holy,” including “Holy Barracuda,” “Holy Happenstance,” “Holy Rats in a Trap,” “Holy Homicide.”

Holy smokes

The mourners stood

Behind the church

Swapping Camels

And Marlboro 100s

And stories of a good man

Gone too soon.
