Today's Friday Flashback is dedicated to my friend Alyssa, who:
a.) loves poetry
b.) is my alpha reader, which means she reads all of the sludge that comes out of my head and onto the paper before ANYONE else. Heck, even before I've revised it. I'm talking seriously bad sludge.
Well, Alyssa, that sludge had to start somewhere, and I'm pretty sure my 7th grade poetry folder is that place.
So, for your reading enjoyment, may I present ~
(poem typed below)
Entering the peacock hut
I see the strange birds walk a-strut
and as they walked they called out loudly
And the monkeys climed the fence
Swinging along the green tree tops
Wailing at the top of their lungs
Eeet! Eeet! Eeet!
The snakes ate mice
They knew no better
And they sung as they coiled in fright
But as I joined the excitable seals
Wallup came the smack of their ball
As they chanted all together
Oit! Oit! Ark!
The lions and their "Roar!"
Roared as I left
But hearing the birds twerp-tittering
I knew I'd come again
Tears are dripping down my cheeks right now. I'm not sure if they are tears of hilarity or pure humiliation.
