April 12 Poetry Prompt: In the News

This is a widely used prompt that has been used for decades. There's a reason for this--it gets results.

Use one of the actual headlines below as the title for your poem. You do not have to research the actual news story that goes with the headline you choose; in fact, it is probably better not to. Use your imagination and develop your own "story" (if you write a narrative poem) or jump off from the headline and see where a lyric approach takes you.
