Poetry Tourney Extras (winter 2011)

Here fans of the poetry tournament can post what they would have written for the competition, and competitors can post rejected poems

Here's my 'reject' from round one:


Title: Unusual
Animal: Lion

I never learned to roar and I couldn’t spawn the pups
I was so embarrassed that I wouldn’t even strut.

But then my keeper’s son stayed late at the zoo
He taught me something funny that I could actually do!

And now my show’s gone to the top,
No, I don’t jump, or spin, or hop,

Yet all the two leggers exclaim “he rocks!”
Because that cool kid taught me to beatbox.

The End
