Scary, Fat and Giant Monster – A Poem

By Gloson On May 30, 2009 1 Comment

There is a giant monster somewhere
near the Indian sea.
It is as fat and furry and
as scary as can be.

It has three funny looking horns
and one eye on its head.
Its claws are sharp and spiky
and its eyes are crimson red.

Were it to jump up 10 miles high
and fall down with a ‘BOOM!’
The whole Earth would then shake and shake
we’d think we were at doom.

If you throw it an onion it
would stand there and just cry.
The noise would break some glasses
and the folks would say, “Oh my!”

Beware folks, for it’s coming to you
right this very now.
The giant monster knows exactly
where you live, somehow.

I’m gonna tell you the best thing yet
which is quite contrary:
The scary, fat and giant monster
is imaginary.

Mission: Impossible – A Poem

By Gloson On May 30, 2009 2 Comments

Ethan has to make the ocean
fall up to the sky.
In just a millisecond,
Jim must eat a giant pie.

Claire must thread a tiny needle
with the thickest rope.
Eugene must wear humongous pants
but not look like a dope.

Franz must flap his arms and fly
(His arms were tied to boulders).
Max must swim a hundred miles
by wriggling his shoulders.

I then realized that I have made
a really big mistake.
This great and thrilling movie is
impossible to make.

The Strongest Man – A Poem

By Gloson On May 30, 2009 10 Comments

The strongest, fittest man on Earth
was very, very strong, since birth.
He could hold ten fat grizzly bears
and seven houses. Yes, he dares.

He really could hold ten tall trees.
He also could hold cars with ease.
He truly could hold tons of rocks
when they were put in a big box.

One day I challenged the strong man.
I asked him and then he said, “Can.”
He almost was brought to his death.
I guess he couldn’t hold his breath.
