I love writing stories and poems, so here are two favorite silly poems that I wrote recently:
-Ally and the Mosquitoes
Ally Allison Dare
has mosquito bites everywhere
one on her back
one on her rump
Man, those mosquitoes must be plump!
Her hip and her lip
her nose and her toes.
Wow! They’re huge! Look at those!
My brother, the couch potato
sits and dips his Dorito chips
in bowls of tomato.
He avidly watches TV to hear
just how the Pioneers beat the Musketeers.
Can I have water? He’d ask.
I just responded with sass.
“Potato, potato, what’s that you say?
potato, potato, I’ll do it… another day.”
These conversations lasted years
Until my brother would cry real- live tears
Watching the pioneers beat the musketeers.
He’s found that people will pay good money
just to watch something funny.
So, him and his potato self
are paid to watch their favorite teams
lose, for some expensive memes.
Honestly, though, he’d do anything for a bag of chips
and yes, of course,
some tomato dips.
