TITLE: The Theme Could Be Better

It seems like a cruel booby trap,
For all who love writing look forward to sighting
A theme that’s not off of the map.
Who’s chosen this subject, I ask?
It seems like a horrible task.
It’s no fun to ponder, my mind wants to wander
Please give me a swig from a flask.
There are millions of words to choose from,
I think that this one is dumb.
There must be one better, like “coat” or “red sweater”,
But to “snap” I must surely succumb.
I know there are those who agree
But to you I am stating my plea;
Please choose another like “Dad” or “Big Brother”
I’m not fond of this trite potpourri.
A number of words come to mind,
To miss them you’d have to be blind,
Adjectives and synonyms and adverbs and homonyms
There are so many choices and kinds.
The Bible’s a good place to start
From it there’s no need to depart.
There are topics galore, and you’ll never need more
Than the Word to its listeners impart.
I don’t mean to hurt or offend,
The chooser could well be a friend,
I don’t need a foe, and I want you to know
That this poem indeed I will send.
I’m looking to next week with trust
A topic that’s fitting a must.
Please take time to think and discern with a wink
That whatever you choose will be just.
