"How to do Motivated" --Replacement Poem - An Exercise

Day twelve: Quoting from the Napowrimo website, "Today’s (optional) prompt is a “replacement” poem. Pick a common noun for a physical thing, for example, “desk” or “hat” or “bear,” and then pick one for something intangible, like “love” or “memories” or “aspiration.” Then Google your tangible noun, and find some sentences using it. Now, replace that tangible noun in those sentences with your intangible noun, and use those sentences to create (or inspire) a poem. "

All right, I picked 'hand,' and 'motivation'.  Let's see what happens!  
(This exercise turned out to be more fun than I expected.  I enjoyed it.)

How to do 'Motivated'

Selected topics in the motivation section were developed in partnership w
ith the American Society for Surgery of the motivation. 
The Grand Motivation Gallery specializes in fine American craft 
and fine art by artists from across the U.S., 
with a particular focus on artists from Minnesota.
On one motivation, we can appeal for peace, 
and on the other, declare war.
All motivations on deck! 
These gloves will keep your motivations warm.
She put her motivations over her eyes.
He sat quietly with his motivations folded in his lap.

Do you need a motivation?
