In my Freshman year L&L class, we had a poetry unit. My teacher, Ms. Doersen, made us write multiple different kinds of poems. Not to brag, but I was pretty amazing at it. But, like all great things, my great poetic saga had to come to an end. I hung up the hat and swore that I would never return. But, as we come to the beginning of this beautiful season of Fall, I’ve decided to step back into the limelight. I wrote, for your reading enjoyment, my magnum opus. So, without further ado, please enjoy:
Heath’s Awesome Autumnal Anthology
Leaves fall in autumn
They are orange and yellow
You were expecting a proper haiku, weren’t you?
*Snaps of congratulation*
Halloween is coming soon,
Fear and fun galore
It’s really hard to rhyme with soon,
My knees are kinda sore
I wanted to write a rhyming poem,
But now I don’t think it’s so cool
*Overwhelming amounts of polite and adoring snaps*
I call it the screaming lightbulb, thank you
*Hooting hollering, and other such forms of loud affirmation*
I understand how difficult it may be to read these final lines, as your eyes are blurred by tears by the sheer beauty of my writing. But, I implore you, steel your heart and calm your emotions. For there shall be more in the future. I bid thee ado.
