It’s the Day Before Poem in Your Pocket Day
By Riley, ACE Poetry Contest Mascot, Alpha Public Schools
It’s best to be a dog ‘cause treats fall when humans jog and it’s best to snag ‘em quick and when those treats fall from the table whether for real or sneak-shared by John
it’s a treat to have a treat cause I’m a dog
It’s best to be a cat ‘cause we don’t rush for those pats nor wait for that splat o table treat we prefer to sniff it first n make sure it is worth our thirst for excellence and not the worst
it’s a treat to choose a treat cause I’m a cat
It’s best to get along sharing treats of words of rhyme wrapped in lyrics rap n tweets or epic Haiku telling ode to narrative in a limerick sonnet doggerel kind of refrain
it’s a treat to have a poem in your pocket
Arf! Arf! Some of my best doggerel, don’t you think?
Tomorrow is Poem in Your Pocket Day, so have a poem in your pocket ready to share with friends and strangers. Poems are the best treats. Even Lucy agrees.
