Poetry Prompt: God for a Day

We Drink Because We’re Poets Poetry Prompt.

A god for a day
Having power in my hands
Only for a day

I’d let the world stay
While I live a life I want
Adventure and fun

Visit Angkor Watt
Machu Pichu and Stonehenge
Without a ticket

Food and booze will flow
As I share them with new friends
From around the globe

A party will grow
From Greenland to New Zealand
Its noise will shake stars

Maybe I would change
The mentality of man
One drink at a time

About Charles Yallowitz

Charles E. Yallowitz was born, raised, and educated in New York. Then he spent a few years in Florida, realized his fear of alligators, and moved back to the Empire State. When he isn't working hard on his epic fantasy stories, Charles can be found cooking or going on whatever adventure his son has planned for the day. 'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.
