Chris Crossing- p. 1Hey. I'm Chris. I'm like 11 and my parents sent me on a train to some remote place called Eastleaf.
And I'm definitely not happy about it.
I stopped looking out the window and saw some cat staring at me.
Wait, a cat? He's about as tall as I am, and he's on his hind legs, and he talked.
They put me on a furry train. What is wrong with them. This has to be a joke.
"So what's your name?" The cat asked, coming over to sit across from me.
"Chris. And you?"
Oh, wow, really?
He asked me like a million questions.
I thought he would never shut up, and he probably wouldn't have if I didn't get off.
"Now arriving in Eastleaf! Eastleaf station!"
'Finally', I thought.
I got off and was greeted by a monkey.
Then, as I exited the station, I saw a whole bunch of animals.
Did my parents really send me to a remote town of anthropomorphic animals? What kind of sick mind would do that? What have I done to deserve that? Did I rip the tag off a mattress? Why are they all around me? Are they
You're Not A PoetYou’re not a poet because of strung words
Together on row upon row again
Of blank verse or perhaps liberal rhyme.
‘Slam’ all you want, other poets wonder;
Your ignorance of couplets a blunder?
Yes! I speak harshly, but it’s no gross crime,
To point with honesty failed verse of thine.
No real poet discards upper case words;
Lets prose crawl on paper like listless worms.
You seek to free verse of those stern letters,
Sever away bleak capital fetters,
But it doesn’t sing of great speech sublime,
Rather, it sneaks of writing in spare time.
Wait! before you throw me in the icy Rhine;
It’s hard to put verse together in rhyme,
To make our dull words sound great all the time,
Hear them ring out loud, like a clear clock’s chime,
Heralding a poet’s summer prime.
Yet the sacred muses weep at your crime;
Your pentameter mangled thick like slime,
The subject not gilded in raiment fine;
Your bold ink font, crystal waters divine
Tastes bitter to the ton
Keep in Touch!
