Kids’s Poem: The Cure

bear hiccuping while holding a soda bottle

The Cure
by Nessa Morris

Shouldnt’ve guzzled my Mountainy Dew,
Not surprisingly, hiccups ensue.
  And they don’t go away
  For a year and a day,
When they’re — HICCUP! — replaced  by “ACHOO!”

Ugh. I am behind. I didn’t even think of writing a poem over the weekend. Ok, well, I thought about it. I just never took pencil to paper or pulled out my computer.

I pulled this blog post together on my morning break. Now it’s my lunch break, and I’ve not only managed to write my poem, but I had a few minutes left, so I could paste it into the blog post. Yay!

ice cream, 25%; itch, 50%; if, 25%

“Itch” was the winner for Friday’s poem.

Don’t forget to vote and suggest words! I only had two words suggested for today’s poll,  since “jello” was suggested by more than one person.

If you’re reading by email, you’ll need to click the post title to go to my site and place your vote. I wish I knew how to make make the forms appear via email, but that’s beyond me…

Thanks for reading!
