November 2010 Poem A Day Challenge - Day 27

From Poetic Asides:
For today's prompt, take the phrase "Blame the (blank)," replace the blank with a word or phrase, use the new phrase as the title of your poem, and then, write the poem. Some example titles might include: "Blame the rain," "Blame the loud-mouthed jerk in the row behind us," "Blame the ref," etc.

Another fill in the blank title prompt. I reacted with relative disinterest, although I managed to write a short poem – Blame The Future, where I blame all my present day problems on things that haven't happened yet. Because it's more fun to have a futuristic scapegoat than a present day one.

I must be getting used to title prompts, because I didn't have a great deal of trouble with this one. Or the habit of writing to the prompt has taken hold and I can tackle whatever comes. Or maybe I just got lucky today.

Only one haiku, and one tanka, both on the season we're experiencing at the moment. Hey, when you don't know what to write about, write about the weather.
