    Poetry Corner

    Since it is the offseason, I figured I would start a thread for poetry. Here are some poems I have wrote. Feel free to post your own poetry or comment on some.

    Winter Onslaught

    The warm days
    The cool nights
    Which give way to the northern lights
    The summer breeze
    Which rustles through the fallen leaves
    Long sleeves and sweaters
    To withers the weather
    The smell of morning dew
    The days are getting cool
    Winter is near
    Which is my worse fear
    Being trapped indoors
    No more making smores
    No more walking through the woods
    Without wearing big jackets and hoods
    No more sitting by the lake
    Next comes the season I hate
    Time to pull out all the cold gear
    Because winter is here

    Men

    Women have the ability to make
    A poor man rich
    A rich man poor
    A strong man weak
    A weak man strong
    A bad man good
    A good man bad
    A wise man dumb
    A dumb man wise
    A straight man crooked
    A crooked man straight
    A wild man tame
    A tame man wild
    Women have the ability to make... Men

    A Poem by BBQ Platypus

    I got really bored
    So I wrote a poem.
    It doesn't rhyme.

    Reflections on Fruitcake by BBQ Platypus

    Fruitcake tastes like @$$.
    Not just any ordinary @$$.
    I'm talking, like
    Your dead grandma's @$$.

    No, No, No... Your first poem should be:

    "Roses are red,
    Violets are blue,
    Some poems rhyme,
    But this one doesn't."

    Here's a great poem I just wrote, called The Bunny:

    Once upon a time,
    There was a cute little bunny,
    That hopped along
    the green green meadow.

    Then I shot it.
    And it bled.

    Thanks PPE for the sig.

    My ninth grade special:

    One day as I was walking on a railroad track,
    I saw an old woman digging in a garbage sack.
    I said to her, "What in the heck are you doing?",
    She said, "Wait your turn, I'm still chewin'!".


    I ran into my old ninth grade teacher a few years ago (she's STILL hot-looking, by the way) and she told me that she still reads this poem to her students to inspire them to be creative (she reasons that if I could write about something like that, then they should feel free to write about anything!)...LOL!!!
