This past weekend we had our 2nd poetry party, and we came up with some fun, creative stuff again. Some of the more entertaining poems and creations I thought I would list here as a record of the party. As last year, we wrote some haikus, and also some collaborative free-form poems. Here are the highlights:
Sharks seek bamboo skirts
Pirate Bahama disease
Scurvy will kill you
Wish they read the nightly news
I would be amused
The train is coming
Oh shit, where is the airport?
Someone stole my bike
To make the mundane classy
The pig slips on the dressing gown
Oh why must we lie when the truth lies uncovered?
There to be seen by all yet none
Love, change and society
One poet’s desire to not be outdone
The ideas are in my mind’s eye
But the words change like scrabble letters
And I can find no clear picture
I have lost interest in poetry
It is horrible
I would rather make a sandwich
Of the turkey variety
As i spread on the mayo
The love returns, the passion exists once more
I am free to create, to do what I was born for
I went to the grocery store – but alas!
My wallet again was only half mast
Without much money
This night could turn funny
What to fill my glass?
With not much money to spare
Do I dare go with a bottle of red?
Or do I just go home instead?
I can’t return empty-handed
Or my evening won’t be enchanted
But what luck, I’ve found the daily deal
A dollar fifty for a bottle, what a steal!
With change in my pocket
I hit the cheese market
Shelves tumble with cubes and wheels
Fontina, swiss and gruyere
Another world from the chaos of the street
Like a lost island and I a pirate fresh in plunder
Treasure in hand I turn towards the Smith’s, amidst the booming thunder
