Plop

by Angela   Jul 27, 2007


Once upon a time
in a far away land
there was a fallen lime
drying out in the sand

Along came a boy
who picked up the fruit
and threw it like a toy
at a big black man's white suit

*Plop* went the fruit
from the suit to the floor
it now sat by his boot
the stain sat at his core

The boy was trapped like a mime
what could he do??
he was frozen in time
he was scared that he'd sue

But the man didn't budge
for he didn't care
that the green colored smudge
was drawing in stares

He said "little man
don't worry, its okay
it wasn't my plan
to wear this suit today.

I'm just on my way
to a funeral showing,
so I'm changing to black
without anyone knowing."

The boy learned a lot...
to forgive and forget
thats the lesson taught
from the man that he met

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

i wrote this for my first poem because i love writing Dr. Seuss style poems. I love being able to write things that kids can also enjoy.. i hope you have fun reading it, and that you'll let me know what you think about it.

    Dr seuss is da BOMB lol... u did really well with this poem, your rhyme scheme/flow was extremelely well kept and the story fit it well because of it's child-like morale. lol.. i know this will sound wierd but my favorite part is how you used a lime.. I would've never thought a lime.. it's such a unique fruit to use in poetry... like.. most would have said like tomato or something... I love it!
