The Portaloo in Waterloo – A Poem

By Gloson On March 17, 2013 4 Comments

Hey guys, as you might know, I lost the #MMPoetry 2013 tournament to the talented Kathy Ellen Davis. (View our matchup here.) She wrote a poem related to poo which knocked my poem out! But I was not the only one who lost to a poo poem. Buffy Silverman also beat Ana Paest with a poo poem.

(Even though I got eliminated, I really enjoyed the tournament and will continue enjoying it till April 2nd! You should too!)

Anyways, after having a friendly twitter chat with Stephen W. Cahill (the MMPoetry 2012 Champion), I got an idea for a poo-based poem.


And so, ladies and gentlemen… I present to you, the Portaloo in Waterloo, with the first couplet written by Stephen W. Cahill!

The Portaloo in Waterloo

At the portaloo in Waterloo,
where pigeons coo and people poo……

The French troops warred against the Brits,
whose Prussian allies had got wits,

The Prussians thought with mighty brains,
"We’ll strike the Frenchies with ‘the pains’."

And so, this tactic they did do:
They stole their ONLY portaloo!

And then, they dropped the final jinx;
Poured laxatives in French troops’ drinks!

On battle day, the French troops fell, because they had no portaloo.
And now you know the story of the portaloo in waterloo!


Hope you liked it! 😀 Cheers!
Gloson “Teh” Poet.

Update (March 20, 2013): Oh my, there’s ANOTHER poop poem!

In the MMPoetry’s battle, 7-jostle vs. 15-euphemism, Susan Taylor Brown (7-jostle) wrote a non-fiction dino poem and Josh J. Close (15-euphemism) wrote a poop poem. There has been a heated poop discussion in the comments. (You should read them!)

Ed DeCaria even made a poop rendition of Susan Taylor Brown’s poem in the comments, which I found pretty amusing.

Previously, Susan Taylor Brown’s amazing poem was leading, but suddenly a group of 4th graders nudged the stupendous poop poem up above, and Josh won by 6 votes. It was an intense battle indeed.

Top Secret Class Meeting – A Poem

By Gloson On March 5, 2013 No Comments

Hello guys. Last week I wrote a poem, the Bibliophile, to practice for #MMPoetry 2013. The next word I received was “clandestine”, which means a secret underground meeting.


Ahoy, classmateys! Listen up! The teacher is not here.
She has gone to the restroom, and we all are in the clear.
So come on, mateys, let us meet and let no one detect us.
We want to prank the teacher; we want no one to suspect us!

Now, are you reader for top secret, private information?
Good! Do this, and this, then this. And stand in this formation.
Great! Clandestine is dismissed, and—Oh!—Here comes the teacher!
Ready? 5, 4, 3, 2, 1—Happy Birthday Mrs. Beecher!

Hope you like it! Rate it on a scale from 1 to 10 in the comments below. Thanks! You can also give me another prompt word below. I will write whatever you prompt till March 11. 🙂

The Bibliophile – A Poem

By Gloson On March 1, 2013 6 Comments

Hello guys. In order to practice for the March Madness Poetry 2013 in March (duh), I’m gonna start practicing! 😀 So I asked people to give me difficult prompt words on my Facebook page.


Hi! I am a bibliophile.
I love to read good books,
about math, fiction, business, science,
or even how to cook!

Watch movies? Well, sometimes I do.
I’d rather read, my mate.
’cause movies are done visualized.
Books let you create.
