I just stopped by Reason2Rhyme – “So Cliche” for the first time and thought I’d try my hand at it. Below are the instructions for entry.
Monday, July 25, 2012 Poetry Prompt…
Choose a clichéd phrase (“fit as a fiddle,” “think out of the box,” “running on empty,” etc.) and turn it around. Use the new meaning created by this reversal to fuel a poetic meditation.

For I’m lying in mud
With a bladder of Bud.
And don’t walk on clay feet from the bar to the street.
