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!


-Couch Potato

          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.
