Poetry topic idea: food poisoning

Today’s poetry topic idea is food poisoning.  There are a number of ways this could be worked into a poem.  Some include poems about:

  • The effects of food poisoning. A poet could write what it is like to suffer from the effects.
  •  

  • Food poisoning that occurs because of negligence. For example, a poet could write about a lax food preparation worker.
  •  

  • Food poisoning that occurs because of intent. A poet could write about someone intentionally poisoning someone else with food.
  •  

  • A broad view of the phrase “food poisoning”. A poet could write about food that is unhealthy (for example, because of too much cholesterol) or unsafe (for example, because of pesticide residue), but is not considered food poisoning in the sense that it isn’t food that has a bacteria that causes illness.
