Max's Poem About Chocolate
Chocolatey, brown goodness
melting down my throat
smooth, delicious, rich, creamy
All my favorite flavors
milk, dark, white too
peppermint chocolate shines in my eye like
the stars at night that I fly under
Chocolate is used for so many things,
but out of them all
Chocolate Chip Cookies are my favorite
I love chocolate
Fang laughed. "Max, this is the worst poem I have ever read!"
I scowled and snatched it out of his hand. "You're just jealous!"
Fang laughed again. "Seriously, you used like every cliche possible! This sucks."
I pouted for a moment. Then something occurred to me. "Fang? How do you know so much about poetry?"
Ha, for my LA class we had to write a poem about chocolate, and we had a list of banned words that were "too cliched." So I wrote a poem using almost all of them and there it was!
