My final thoughts about poetry:
To be honest, I don't like poetry at the first. Now I really like it, because I learned so much about poetry how fun it can be and more. I like to read poems now and I create my own poem.
I don't like poetry, because I don't like reading and sometimes the words is a bit confusing.But, I like to read poems with rhymes.
Now I kinda like poetry, because yesterday I read a couple poems from a book and it is hilarious. That is why I like poems.
I think the Limbo Poem is kinda harsh to african-american people. Because, when I watched the video of it, it it so cruel what the americans and the europeans done to the afican-american people.They treat them like animals, which it not a good thing.

Aliens stole my underpants 7/1/2011
To understand the ways
of alien beings is hard
and I’ve never worked it out
why they landed my backyard.
And I’ve always wondered why
on their journey from the stars,
these aliens stole my underpants
and took them back to Mars.
They came on a Monday night
when the weekend wash has been done
pegged out on the line to be dried by the morning sun.
Mrs Driver from next door
was a witness at the scene
when aliens snatched my underpants-
i’m glad that they were clean!
It seems they were quite choosy
as nothing else was taken.
Do aliens wear underpants
or were they just mistaken?
I think I have a theory
as to what they wanted them for,
they needed to block off a draught
blowing in through the spacecraft door.
Or maybe some Mars museum
wanted items brought back from space,
just think, my pair of Y-fronts
displayed in their own glass case.
And on the label beneath
would be written where they got ‘em
and how such funny underwear
once covered an Earthing’s bottom!
by, Brian Moses
I thought it was quite funny because its a very unusual and funny because aliens don't really steal peoples underpants and aliens aren't real.Some parts was not that good because they didnt say why they took the underpants and I really wanted to know.Overall I reckon it was quite funny and i hope people who read this poem enjoy and laugh at it like I did.

A giant footprint for mankind

The Last Sonnet
There are many challenges that I have seen
not many are as odd as this one is
to this challenge I am not very keen
I would much rather get a final quiz
The assignment is an anthology
so many poems to put into it
please Easton send me to biology
if someone sold one I would buy a kit 7/1/2011
I say the worst part of this assignment
Is writing a original sonnet
This makes my brain go out of alignment
to not do it can I move to Monett
This, the last sonnet I will ever do
is now being enjoyed right now by you.
The reason I choose this poem because it is interesting to read. The writer make it so obvious by putting "The last Sonnet" as a tittle page, she should tell it at the end of the poem which she did. Overall I think the poem is good and I say that because it rhymes, not all of the poem just a few lines. I like it and I hope people who read this poem will fell the same way as I do.
These words, they just won't come out of my head.
They stay deep down inside, where i can't reach.
I feel as if my mind has now gone dead.
These thoughts, i just can't hold, i want to screech!
You want me to write you a just sonnet,
but i cant think of what to say to you.
All i can think of is the word bonnet, 11/1/2011
because its the only rhyme i can do.
if you want a better sonnet than this.
Then so help me, cause i don't have a clue.
do you think of my sonnet as amiss?
or are these thoughts down in my head adieu?
Will these ideas in my mind now leave?
So then i ask when will i be relieved?
First of all, I choose this poem because when I read the first few lines, I just like it already. Because it says"
These words, they just won't come out of my head.They stay deep down inside, where i can't reach.I feel as if my mind has now gone dead.
" I feel the same, I can't reach the words and the just won't come out,this poem suits me. I got confused with the words for example "amiss and adieu". Overall I think this poem is really good.
Look, if you had one shot, or one opportunity
To seize everything you ever wanted-One moment
Would you capture it or just let it slip?
His palms are sweaty, knees weak, arms are heavy
There's vomit on his sweater already, mom's spaghetti
He's nervous, but on the surface he looks calm and ready to drop bombs,
but he keeps on forgettin what he wrote down,
the whole crowd goes so loud
He opens his mouth, but the words won't come out
He's choking now, everybody's joking now
The clock's run out, time's up over, bloah!
Snap back to reality, Oh there goes gravity
Oh, there goes Rabbit, he choked
He's so mad, but he won't give up that
He won't have it , he knows his whole back's to these ropes
It don't matter, he's dope
He knows that, but he's broke
He's so stagnant that he knows
When he goes back to his mobile home, that's when it's
Back to the lab again yo
This this whole rhapsody
He better go capture this moment and hope it don't pass him
You better lose yourself in the music, the moment
You own it, you better never let it go
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime yo
The soul's escaping, through this hole that it's gaping
This world is mine for the taking
Make me king, as we move toward a, new world order
A normal life is boring, but superstardom's close to post mortem
It only grows harder, only grows hotter
He blows us all over these hoes is all on him
Coast to coast shows, he's know as the globetrotter
Lonely roads, God only knows
He's grown farther from home, he's no father
He goes home and barely knows his own daughter
But hold your nose 'cause here goes the cold water
His hoes don't want him no more, he's cold product
They moved on to the next schmoe who flows
He nose dove and sold nada
So the soap opera is told and unfolds
I suppose it's old partner but the beat goes on
Da da dum da dum da da
No more games, I'ma change what you call rage
Tear this roof off like 2 dogs caged
I was playing in the beginning, the mood all changed
I been chewed up and spit out and booed off stage
But I kept rhyming and stepwritin the next cypher
Best believe somebody's paying the pied piper
All the pain inside amplified by the fact
That I can't get by with my 9 to 5
And I can't provide the right type of life for my family
Cause man, these goddam food stamps don't buy diapers
And it's no movie, there's no Mekhi Phifer, this is my life
And these times are so hard and it's getting even harder
Trying to feed and water my seed, plus
Teeter totter caught up between being a father and a prima donna
Baby mama drama's screaming on and
Too much for me to wanna
Stay in one spot, another day of monotony
Has gotten me to the point, I'm like a snail
I've got to formulate a plot or I end up in jail or shot
Success is my only option, failure's not
Mom, I love you, but this trailer's got to go
I cannot grow old in Salem's lot
So here I go is my shot.
Feet fail me not cause maybe the only opportunity that I got
You can do anything you set your mind to, man 111
I think that Eminem create this song to tell the whole world, if you like something don't be scared to go for it because you only get one change,like he said "ONE SHOT". Overall I think this song is nice listen and for everyone.
I need a double cheese burger and hold the lettuce
Don’t be frontin son — no seeds on the bun
We be up in this drive through order for two
I gots a cravin’ fo’ a numba nine like my shoe
We need some chicken up in here, in this hizzle
For rizzle my mizzle, extra salt on da frizzle
Doctor pepper my brothah, another for ya motha
Double-double supah size and don’t forget the fries
This poem is hilarious when you listen to the voice. This poem is about, a guy ordering a burger and tell the to the speakers with rhymes words. Overall I think this poem this is really really funny, try to listen to the video.
Sitting back taking a break
Staring at this stale piece of cake.
I ponder what to eat for lunch
Or shall I call it brunch?
Tacos, pizza, or a salad
This is one crazy ballad.
I usually don't go out to eat
Walking that far would hurt my feet.
Finally it has been decided 11/1/2011
I choose this poem because it is funny and I wish I can eat Hamburgercheeseranchbacoburger. I like the first the paragraph because it rhymes. And it the sentence"
Walking that far would hurt my feet" it is true, I do get my feet hurt sometimes when I walked to far. Overall, this poem is really good to read.

And the sweet time
That we had
Now close your eyes
And welcome the darkness

She is the one to look upon,
She is the one who cares,
With the purest heart filled with love and forgiveness,
With a beautiful face and a golden smile,
She gives us the feeling of warmth and courage,
She is someone who revives our youthfulness,
She is our teacher,
She is our friend,
She is our strength,
And a wonderful blessing of God.
I really love this poem not just like it, because this poem reminds me of god gave me a very kind heart mother. All the writer said is true and
, I think my friends should read this poem because it is a great poem.
In the Bahamas
Seldom wear pyjamas
Often keep geese
Sometimes travels by train
Most people in China
Know how to scuba
But nobody plays the tuba
Always wear blue
No one wears a tie
(Don't ask me why)
Isn't expected to carry a fan
The staff in hotels
In the Seychelles
Like ringing bells
The food is delicious
And quite nutritious
Rises at noon.
by John Irwin
This poem this AWESOME! every paragraph rhymes man I LOVE IT! My favourite part of the poem is the ending "The moon, in Cameroon, Rises at noon". Overall I think this poem by John Irwin is brilliant. I reckon my friends should this poem, I bet they will LAUGH!...
Drinking beer by myself
Watching TV alone in the dark
Get nothing to do just sitting Down
Alone in the corner
A boring day of my life
Sweet Juicy Baby
This sweet looks like a baby,
reminds me of my childhood,
Taste like tasty orange
When i eat it, feel so soft.
Please teach me how to write a poem
On a piece of paper
Every single day
Teach me how to
You can help right?
Referee blew his whistle,
Football players screaming for the ball,
The coach shouted at the players to run faster,
I think poetry is Fantastic, I only like poems which rhymes and funny. When Mrs.Abena said that next term is Poetry, I was like"Awwwwwwwww,man". But now, I can write 4 poems in one day, I just need to think and need inspiration. I will use poetry in the future or teach somebody my friends and everyone.
My final thoughts about poetry:
Now I like to read poem and creating one, Poetry is like the best thing to read and
