Boring Town

A Poem By Hannah W. // 2/27/2009

I live in such a boring town
where there's never something strange
If you looked up into the sky
you'd see pigs all flying planes.

The cats down the street are lazy,
all they do is sit and talk
and the dogs are hardly better
when they take their owners on a walk

And the stores 'round here are boring too:
there's Smithy's Magic Locks,
a restaurant run by spotted owls,
and Bertha's Dancing Rocks

All the cars in this town are boring colors,
like Opal Aquamarine,
and the parrot down the street sings songs
which is more annoying than it seems

The houses are so very dull,
they only wake at night,
and wander about while we're all asleep,
then they stop by morning's light

The trees are so exceedingly smart
that it's hardly worth the time
to play chess with them, and more a waste
to try and solve their rhymes

Not to mention every night at ten
each and every shining star
clears its throat and then begins
to play harp and guitar

I could probably go on for ages
about how boring and how dull
this stupid, sleepy town is
till my voice becomes a lull...

But I bet you'll never know how I feel
'cause no town's as boring as mine
I bet if I lived where you live
I'd have such an exciting life!

i'm at the library, and people are staring at me, wondering why I have such a big grin on my face. This poem is awesome, Hannah!

This is marvelously

This is marvelously hilarious! Sounds slightly like a nursery rhyme or something.....poor children; they are going to grow up ever so confused. It's sort of A. A. Milne-ish (it looks like I was trying to say "Milnefish", whatever that is). I am a fan of his, and I am going to raise my children on he and Lemony Snicket. What dry humoured children shall they be.....

It takes people a long time to learn the difference between talent and genius, especially ambitious young men and women. --Little Women
