Really Awful Ad Vice


Today’s NaPoWriMo prompt is to write advertisement for a poem and/or fictional products:

For writing of an ad,
Don’t put it into prose
All memories are bad
The product no one knows
Unless a rhyme you nurse …
 … To advertise a poem
Rehearse it with a verse
By which one comes to know‘m

 

Brillo Shine works like a dream
At polishing it’s simply great
It leaves the metal with a gleam
By taking off the silver plate

Wishy Wash does washing best
Wishy makes your wash go sploshy;
Test it out against the rest –
Wishy Wash is wishy-washy!

Bossy Boots makes shoes all shine,
With bootlicking incredible:
Your minions do the shining fine,
For it is fully edible.

(As endorsed by Ebagum himself!  From politicians, I can make a fortune on this one …)

  1. Mugabe’s shoes would have to be made of dark chocolate before I would lick them. 🙂 I never tried Brillo on my silver plate. I’m so unadventurous. 😦

    The minions from Despicable Me love bananas so I hope bossy boots comes in banana flavour! 🙂

    I thought I really oughta try to write a little ad
    but I could not think of one, which is rather sad
    I could attempt a Cadburys choc,
    but I have a mental block
    They say its all to do with age and time
    to write things of good sense that rhyme
    So I shall leave it up to you
    to say goodnight then, is my cue
