Admittedly, this is not my idea--it's been making the rounds on a few listservs. But it seems like a fun idea.
Former New York Governer Cuomo once said: "You campaign in poetry; you govern in prose."
You are invited to compose variations on Cuomo's text and post your responses here.
You ______________ in poetry; you ______________ in prose.
You campaign in ____________ ; you govern in ______________.
Feel free to post more than once, post on your own blog, distribute this text to others, collect versions of these sentences from people you meet, and post those here, too.
The responses are to be as spontaneous as possible. Maybe this is the start of that political poem you've always wanted to write.
