Poetry topic idea: accidents

Today’s poetry topic idea is accidents.

Accidents could be viewed in different ways and from different perspectives.

Accidents could be major things, such as car accidents, or minor things, such as spilling a drink.

Accidents could be viewed from the person who commits the accident, or, if there is one, from the person who is the recipient of it.

Looking at accidents, one could look at issues, such as responsibility, accountability, intention, apology and guilt.

Accidents could be viewed as having negative consequences (e.g. a car accident) or positive consequences (e.g. if not for some accident, the couple would never have met).

Here is an accident related poem:

Cutting the hair,
the guard slipped …

uh …
does anyone have a hat?
