I found it hard to start, since I'm used to writing in private, with it quiet. This was in public and quite noisy. However, I did eventually manage to get moving. I think I want to practice writing in all sorts of places more, so that I lose an excuse to not write.
I love the smell of soccer grass Fresh-cut and ready for a game. I love the look of chocolate 'Cause looking doesn't lead to blame. But what I really love the most, Tho I really shouldn't boast, Is the sound of candy I made myself Falling down from off the shelf.Notes: I was shooting for sensations you wouldn't normally associate with these things: the smell of soccer, the look of chocolate, and the sound of candy. While I'm not particularly fond of this poem, I like the idea and may play with it some more.
A carrot, tomato, and potato Set sail in a boat one day. The carrot got sliced, The tomato was diced, And the potato just laughed away.Notes: I hope this one went to a little kid.
You filthy sadist.Notes: This was for someone I know. She seemed to appreciate it.
A chicken told me not to tell you about this, but I really think it's something you ought to know. You see, To get the juiciest, tenderest chicken meat Just take a mallet and begin to beat It hard with all your might Even if it gives up a fight. Now, don't tell the chicken that I told you.Notes: I knew this one was going to an adult. Just a little silliness.
Many words are very good, Something "treen" is "made of wood." For this my word you'll have to take: A "tarn" is really a "mountaintop lake." I hope this doesn't scare you off, But to "rale" is to "cough and cough." Many words are good to know, And, oh, how I love them so.Notes: The words in quotes in this poems are ones that I've learned through playing Boggle, either by seeing other people use them or by making up something that sounds wordish and looking it up. My vocabulary has definitely increased since I've started playing Boggle. I really like this idea, and I may play with it more. I'll have to start paying attention and writing down all of the words that I've learned through Boggle that most people don't know.
Knock, knock. Who's there? Banana. Banana who? Knock, knock. Who's there? Banana. Banana who? Knock, knock. Who's there? Banana. Banana who? Knock, knock. Who's there? Banana. Banana who? Knock, knock. Who's there? Banana. Banana who? Knock, knock. SHUT THE FUCK UP YOU STUPID ORANGE!Notes: This is based on a traditional knock-knock joke. The punchline is supposed to be "Knock, knock. Who's there? Orange. Orange who? Orange you glad I didn't say banana?" My wife has a certain place in her heart for this joke, especially with me telling it. Just ask her about it sometime.
