Write a poem every day of April with the 2020 April Poem-A-Day Challenge. For today’s prompt, write a massive poem.

After today’s poem, we’ll be only three days from the finish line for this year’s challenge. Let’s poem on!
For today’s prompt, write a massive poem. The poem itself could be massive in size and length. Or it could take on a massive problem, describe a supermassive black hole, or praise a massive bowl of ice cream covered in chocolate syrup and whipped cream. Whatever you write, I hope it’s a massive success.
Remember: These prompts are just springboards; you have the freedom to jump in any direction you want. In other words, it’s more important to write a new poem than to stick to the prompt.

Get your poem on with these poetic forms!
In The Complete Guide of Poetic Forms: 100+ Poetic Form Definitions and Examples for Poets, Writer’s Digest’s resident poetry expert and former Poet Laureate of the Blogosphere Robert Lee Brewer showcases more than 100 poetic forms to serve as both an informative resource and inspiration for new writing!

Plus, it offers an incredible mix of the old favorites—like the sestina, villanelle, and pantoum—with more contemporary forms—like the fib, golden shovel, and hay(na)ku.

Here’s my attempt at a Massive Poem:
“Would You Rather”
Would you rather have a massive
amount of cash or happiness?
Choose one, and please, don’t be passive–
would you rather have a massive
headache or have a combative
child? One more or the other less?
Would you rather have a massive
amount of cash or happiness?
