From NaPoWriMo.net –

 

Today’s prompt (optional, as always) is a little something I’m calling “Twenty Questions.” The idea is to write a poem in which every sentence, except for the last one, is in the form of a question. That’s it! It can be as long or short as you like. The questions can be deep and philosophical (‘what is the meaning of life?’) or routine and practical (‘are you going to eat that?’). Or both!

Happy writing!

And from the little guy:

 

Is there invisible paint?

 

Is there invisible ink?

 

If you use invisible paint, how are you going to turn it back to its original color?

 

If you use invisible ink, how are you going to figure out what it says?

 

La, la, la invisible paint!

 

La, la, la invisible ink!
