A long long time ago, back when I was in high school, I began writing bad poetry. Today (and in the coming weeks) I will be sharing this bad poetry with all of you.
This one is the first one I ever wrote. I wrote while serving "in-school suspension". Unlike a regular suspension this form of punnishment had to be served while in school! I think I got this because I was tardy to many times... Yep, me the straight A student who routinely scored 100's on his report cards and ruined the "grading on a curve" system for all of the other kids was habitualy tardy at school.
Well, here it is:
Here I sit, with strange thoughts
thinking of who I am not.
I see strange things through inverted eyes,
they leave me almost hypnotized.
And still I wander,
I wander on,
never knowing quite what's going on
Yeah, I know the grammer and punctuation are probably terrible but I'm working from memory here as I'm not certain where the original of this piece currently resides. I know my book is somewhere in my attic...
Oh yes, I was inspired to share this bad poetry with you after Ms. Q brought this up on her blog with her Let's get poetic meme post.
