jakeryannelson’s Poem For Cooking or Eating
“Bunny Hill Dayz” Ft. Dana Larison
Pizza, French Fry, Pizza, Ouch.
Another bump on my rump.
That won’t bring my hopes down though.
I’m learning to ski!
Paige W.’s Poem For Movies or Silence
“Thoughts, on Thoughts”
I don’t know what silence is,
I imagine it’s divine.
The voice in my head’s too loud,
the worst part – it’s mine.
Big B0ss Bobo’s Poem For Movies or Silence
Chaplin, Oh to be like him
I had better look the part!
Suits on, now time for a shave
Wow, I look racist
Zack D’s poem for Breakfast or Running Errands
I’ll put patron in my eggs
Enough to forget last night
Where I think I lost my mind
Or at least my heart and soul
Maybe one more shot
Scott Wylie’s Poem For Breakfast or Running Errands
Hey! Today is my birthday.
I was born today dumbass!
You did not say anything!
Some father you are.
Mackenzie Elizabeth’s Poem For Birthdays or Birdwatching
The cake arrives, it’s chocolate
Vanilla is far better
Someone puts a hat on me
Birthdays are the worst
Wynn Edgar’s Poem For Cooking or Eating
decorative hors d’oeuvres served to
feed my faint narcissism,
paints a portrait of how I
desperately wish to be seen-
Quick, smile for my Insta
