Daily Prompt 10,000 Spoons…When all you need is a knife might not be ironic, but it is unfortunate. Add your own verse, stanza, or story of badly-timed annoyance to Alanis Morissette’s classic.
Here is how I hated this song last time this dumb prompt came around.
A trite song striking the right chord
With a young generation downcast and bored.
Pretty girl with a nasal whine, CDs fly off the shelves
But in the long-term, such sniveling won’t sell
You appear to be “deep” but that isn’t it.
Rake in the millions from just one hit.
Life has a funny way of helping you out.
Isn’t it ironic.
Here’s how I’m hating it this time
Irony is a human construction, a point of view
A bad prompt repeats itself, but I’m writing it anyway
It’s something to do while I drink my coffee.
Isn’t it ironic?
This song is not a “classic.” In time,
No one will remember it. Youth always writes
Songs about their surprise at life’s misery.
And isn’t that ironic…don’t you think?
