A Halloween poem in less than 100 words (as told by a reluctant artist)
Draw a Monsterfor Homework
The assignment: Draw a monster for homework.
My best friend and neighbor Jess, smiles a smirk.
“How hard can that be?” She mutters.
“Do you even know me?” I stutter.
Pencils and markers lined up for the job
I make careful shapes, but end up in a blob
A shadow of gray that won’t go away
“What’s that?” I imagine Miss Riley’s voice say.
So what if the corners are tattered and torn,
It’s Halloween which means endless candy corn!
My blob monster drawing, messy shadow and all,
Hangs proudly with others, out in the hall!
