A Collection of Poetry

Hi, my name is Alexander and I am in the eighth grade. I am an above average English student and author. I don’t prefer to write very much, but I can write pretty good. I can do poetry O.K. if I try real hard, as I have done in this column. This column will show my creativity. Some of the poems will not be that great, but they are my best.

Thank You, and enjoy.

Funny is blue.
It smells like seltzer.
It tastes like a pie in the face.
It sounds like a mime.
It feels like a rubber chicken.

It tastes good.
Now it is gone.

Leaves fall from the trees.
Slowly plummeting
Fall is beautiful.

Why does it not end?

I wake up at six.
The alarm is always buzzing.
The snooze button calls.

It’s hit again and again.
I get up much, much later.

Confusion is purple.
It smells like bubble gum.
And tastes like toothpaste.
It makes a boingy sound.
It feels just like Gak.

The Brain
Wise, Knowledgable.
Working, Trying, Thinking.
Calculators, Papers, Hole, Answers.
Losing, Not Thinking, Coloring.
Foolish, Crummy.

Entertaining, Happy.
Watching, Viewing, Understanding.
Somewhat addictive. Hard to turn off.

This column has helped me to more appriciate words and expressions. I still do not think poetry is that great, but this has helped me to be a better poet. I now know some of the pain a writer of poetry must go through in order to obtain perfection in his or her art.

I think I did a good job on this column, but I could have done better had my good computer program been working correctly. Thank You again and goodbye.

    I love this kind of subtle humor, especially in today’s world where everyone else is so aggressive with their humor. I’d rather have my humor be passive-aggressive. Sort of. Or not.
