My Bad

by L. R. Jensen

Did an animal die in your mouth?
A squirrel or, perhaps, a wee bunny?
Now my patience is traveling south
Go brush, don’t do anything funny

Don’t lie and tell me that you did it
I’ll believe that when hell catches cold
You should know how this goes: brush, rinse, spit
After all, you are thirteen years old

I have your toothbrush, dry as a bone
I am desperate. Who knows what I’ll do?
Say again? This toothbrush is my own? 
So it’s me that I’m smelling, not you?

February Fun Poem writing prompt entry
Writing Prompt
So, February is upon us... and it doesn't JUST mean Valentines! In fact, it COULD mean a whole host of other things... but you must CHOOSE ONE. That's right! The link below will bring you to the humongous list of things for which February has been designated the official month for.

Your poetry assignment, should you choose to accept it, is to pick ONE of those items on that list and write a TWELVE LINE RHYMED POEM about it. There is no specified meter or rhyme scheme, so it's totally up to you how the rhythm will work for your month choice. However, when it's all said and done, it must be EXACTLY TWELVE lines and it must RHYME. Remember to include your chosen month designation in your author notes!!

Please keep it CLEAN (I've seen some of those choices on there) and kick it up a notch with your presentation: make us WANT to celebrate February for your choice.... and, of course, want to vote for your Feb-Fun Poem!!

Good luck and run over there and choose.....we're all waiting!! ;-) ;-)

This poem celebrates National Childrens Dental Health Month! It may or may not be based on actual events.
