The Strangest Poem I Ever Wrote (A Tribute to My High School English Teachers)

I’m feeling nostalgic this morning, which is very unlike me.  I can’t seem to get my high school English classes out of my mind.  Here’s a poem I wrote when I was a Junior for a class assignment that I still have memorized after all of these years.  Enjoy!
Headlines

I’ve got a little story and yes, of course, it’s true.

And if you do believe me, I’ve got a bridge to sell to you.

It happened just the other day, no, it was night, oh yes. 

Bigfoot came and captured me and wanted to play chess.

He took me to his spaceship.  There were many people there.

Fred, Barney, and Wilma, Prince Charles, Sonny, and Cher.

He took me to a little room and there was Elvis Presley alive,

He shot me with a laser gun, then his leg began to jive.

What happened then, I can’t remember, but I really know,

That Elvis had my baby while on a U.F.O.

Now, you may think my story leaves a lot to be desired,

But I’ll have you know I sold it to the National Enquirer.

 

Weird, huh?  I still remember that word for word after 25-26 years.

Sorry for the lame content.

See you next time.

John
