How would one write a two voice poem about prohibition in the 1920s? The ''Wet or Dry'' era. I know how it's supposed to be formatted, but what should I include in the poem? i'm not very good nor creative with my words, especially doing a poem. i would love if someone helped me with this

  2. Here is a two-voice poem:
    http://www.victorianweb.org/authors/hardy/poems/digging.html
    Read it carefully to see how the author made it clear who was speaking in each stanza.

    There were clearly two sides, but don't confuse them with the political parties of the 21st century!!

  4. Did you read the poem I linked for you?

    Think of 3 points each side wanted to make in the 1920s, and then write a 4-line stanza for each point. (You should end up with 6 stanzas)

    Then arrange them so that voice 1 is in stanzas 1, 3, and 5. And voice 2 is in stanzas 2, 4, and 6. They are answering each other.

    You could call the prohibition-supporters the Dry Side, and those who wanted booze to flow freely the Wet Side.

  5. yeah, it's a bit hard to decipher though lol, and formatted differently compared to the template my teacher assigned me. the last sentence was really helpful though so thanks for that

  6. You're welcome, and good luck! =)

  7. the problem with me now is I don't know how to put all the information I consumed into a poem. like what would your first lines be for example? i've been trying to come up with something for the past 5 hours. Would something like Wet Side: ''I stand for alcohol'' (???) and Dry Side: ''I want alcohol to be illegal'' idk
