We've all encountered strange characters both real and imaginary. For this exercise, I'd like you to imagine an issue you may have with an inanimate character who maybe had or has a starring role in commercials. Here's an opportunity to explore what real issues we all have and address them with an inanimate character. Maybe Captain Morgan is coming home drunk from work and he needs an intervention to go to AA meetings. Perhaps the Pillsbury Doughboy has an eating disorder. Is the Geico Gecco an illegal alien? Where's his green card? Maybe Dracula needs to address his addiction to blood. What do you say to any of these characters? Perhaps you can come up with an answer or several answers in a poem.
