Hiccups – A Poem by M. M. Socks

By Gloson On February 3, 2013 No Comments

I found a magic lamp (hiccup)
And a genie was inside (hiccup)
He told me if I rubbed his lamp
He’d grow up tall and wide (hiccup)

And grant me one special wish (hiccup)
This is what he said (hiccup)
But in the middle of my wish
I hiccuped instead (hiccup)

So instead of wishing riches (hiccup)
I didn’t get two dimes (hiccup)
I said, “I wish for a million – (hiccup)”
Now I must (hiccup) a million times

Red and Black (Parody of Les Miserables)

(Great for teaching little kids about colors)

It is time for us to
know which colors are which.
Don’t we want to embrace
all the colors that make up the world?
Have you asked of yourself
what’s the color of hay?
Is it red, black, or blue,
yellow, green, or gray?
The colors of the world
you need to know today!

Red – the color of a rose.
Black – the color of a bear.
Red – the color of my clothes.
Black – the color of my hair!

(Music: Transpose +2 semitones)

Green – the smell of smelly gas.
Blue – the color of some eyes.
Green – the color of fresh grass.
Blue – the color of the sky!

(Music: Transpose another +2 semitones)

Orange – the pigment of an orange. (obviously)
Brown – grandfather’s leather glove.
Orange – the taste of pumpkin porridge.
Brown – the chocolate I love!

(Music: Transpose ANOTHER +2 semitones)

Purple– Barney the dinosaur.
Yellow – bananas are this hue.
Purple – eggplants I do adore.
Yellow – the hue of Swiss fondue!

(Music: Transpose YET ANOTHER +2 semitones)

Pink – the glow of dragon fruit.
White – its flesh I take one bite.
Pink – some men desire pink suits.
White – the color of moonlight!

I Am What I Eat – A Video Poem

By Gloson On January 19, 2013 No Comments


I am a leafy green, some grapes
and two, quite large, potatoes.
I am a carrot, and an onion,
and two ripe tomatoes.

I’m two big bunches of bananas,
slices of white bread.
I am a juicy watermelon,
the size of your head.

I’m two pears and two oranges
which are delicious fruits.
I’m also lotuses –
but not the flowers, just the roots.

I’m all of these delicious foods
because I’m what I eat
from my huge watermelon head
to my banana feet.

All About Poems – A Poem by Zara Chan

By Gloson On January 11, 2013 No Comments

Note from Gloson: This is a poem by a schoolmate of fine whose class I gave a poetry lesson. I think it’s randomly and rhymingly fun!

Put some poems in your pocket,
It might come in handy.
You can write poems about omelettes,
Or about your best friend Sandy.

Poems can be excuses too,
For example, when you’re late to school.
Just remember “The Wrong Start
by Marchette Chute,
Then your teacher might not puke.

Writing poems are fun,
Especially when you’re writing
about a bun.
It’s fun because I like food,
But I just can’t eat too much.
So it’s not that good
For me, like such and such.

Poems can be happy,
Poems can be sad.
Poems can be creepy,
They could also be bad.
Poems can be easy,
They can also be hard.
Poems can never keep you busy,
When you just don’t have the heart.

Poems can be your friend,
At least it’s better than living in a den.
With the monstrous animals that
want to eat you;

Some poems make you wanna sleep,
Some of them make you wanna run.
Some poems make you wanna keep
Awake just to bake a bun.

Poems are fun once you
But if you don’t,
Just try as hard as you can.

Reading poems and writing them,
Won’t get you into big big trouble.
You could write about summer camp,
Or even about popping bubbles.

Poems can be music,
Poems can be rap.
If you wisely use it,
Then it won’t seem so bad.

Instead, poems rhyme and give you
a beat or two.

Poems can rhyme with anything,
Or they may not.
They could rhyme with a ting-a-ling-ling,
Or ‘love me yes or love me not’.

So I’ll end with ‘poems are fun,
And it takes nothing to get it done’.
