PAD 27: Take Off

Today’s prompt is to take off. Write a poem about any kind of take off.

Take Off

 

One artist mimics another,

Copies the masters to learn the trade.

Masterful imitation earns the appellation “in the style of”

A well-done model is an homage

But, claim it as one’s own and

It’s a forgery, and criminal,

A poorly done piece is a knock-off,

And most take-offs fail as travesty.
