I. Am. Poet.

I am a poet
Bet you didn’t know it
Now I gotta show it
Better not blow it.

This sounds like a rap, or is it just me?

The sky is dark
Not even a park
Or a guy named Mark
Can tell where they heard a bark.

Oh, I’m rollin’ now.

Writing my blog
Without a dog
Wondering if there’s a clog
Or just a bog.

Please, hold your applause.

Time to write more words
To appease the herds
Can’t let down the nerds
They’ll steal Bo Peep’s curds.

Don’t mess with the Peep.

Food is good
Food is great
I can’t remember
What I ate.


People are kind
People are caring
Better not embarrass yourself
They’re alwaysΒ staring.

Nosy parkers.

Are you looking for a theme
Or is this a dream
I don’t like whipped cream
Don’t hit me with a metal beam.

Please, don’t.

I’m putting words together that rhyme
But not all the time
That would be a crime
And I don’t want to do any time.

Stay in school, kids.

The lines are getting longer
My mind is getting stronger
I’m re-rhyming the word longer
With the word stronger.

Pulled a Houdini on that last verse, eh?

My room is very hot
I wish I had a robot
Who would sleep on a cot
And cook pasta in a stainless steel pot.

Seriously though.

I’ve proven I am a poet
Now you know it
Because I just showed it
And didn’t blow it.

  10. They’ll steal Bo Peep’s curds.

    Don’t mess with Peep. She’ll sick her sheep.

    Hey, I like easy rhymes like this. Whether they are raps or limericks. That’s how I roll…so make fun all you want. πŸ™‚ Seriously. I’m ready to drink beer and create limericks with you. Just like the movie Cocktail with Tom Cruise.

    A lot of poetry I find very dry and half the time, left scratching my head. Leave the real poetry to the poets, but the rest of us can have a bawdy, rowdy good time!

    Hahahah, I don’t know why I read the whole thing (knowing it’s going to be nothing ‘meaningful’), but I just couldn’t stop myself.
    Well done, there!
    Hoping for more such splendid poems! πŸ˜›

      Haha what do you mean not meaningful? These words didn’t speak to you or have deep mean anything??

      I try to write something more meaningful next time! πŸ™‚

        Uh, what I meant was, it wasn’t anything deep or philosophical.
        But it definitely meant SOMETHING.
        I’ve never read such a poem anywhere. My brother keeps chanting sentences with rhyming words, though. It’s genius, really. πŸ˜›

        Lol I’m only kidding, but I’m glad it meant something! Your brother sounds like a genius who will have a blog one day and poems like I do haha

        Hahaha, I guess so. One day he said that he’ll open a blog to compete me. He said he’ll be more popular the moment he enters.
        And then he went back to his food.
