My pal, Oz, is having a "Bad Poetry Contest" on his blog. I've never tried to write a poem, so I thought I might have a chance at winning! I went to my super secret writing spot to write:
Roses are red,
Violets are blue.
I am color-blind
'cause I'm a dog.
But I'll pee on the flowers.
Mommy used to be a classroom teacher and she did a poetry unit, so I stole her notes and examples and learned more about different types of poems.
First, a haiku:
Pottying is fun.
I love to run in the yard.
But sometimes I can't...count.
Next, a limerick:
There once was a dog named Mister,
Who thought of himself an A-lister.
He barks in his crate,
His parents don't think it's great.
He just hopes he never gets a brother.
And finally, an acrostic:
Eat them all the time
Zoo animals can't eat them
Elephants would probably like to
BOL! That was kind of fun! What does everyone think? Head over to Oz's blog to check out more bad poems and even enter yourself!
