Write a poem about something that actually happened to you as a kid.

Once I had a little dog
Who turned into a toady frog
He leaped into a marshy bog
And sat upon a cypress log

Tears have made my pillow soggy
'Cause I miss my little doggie
Frogs aren't fun, no fun at all
They can't play fetch & return my ball

I really hate that stupid frog
That used to be my little dog
I think I'll have a little fun
And so I grab my BB gun

Off to the swamp I run so fast
I see that stupid frog at last
My aim is true. I take my shot
I kill the frog that once was Spot

The End

Re: Write a poem about something that actually happened to you as a kid.

Can you explain how your dog turned into a frog? I want to turn our neighbor's dog into one.

I don't have a poem about my childhood, but I have a haiku about 2020:

I wear the same clothes
day after day after day
yet there is laundry

Roses are red
Violets are blue
I got a bike when I was five

Took my brother and sis
on down to the park
Had a great time
'till way after dark
Got back to our house
where my Dad had his belt
The back of my legs
were starting to melt

I was an obnoxious, noisy brat,
who argued with my brother Matt,
24 and 7, spat, spat, spat,
my dad's belt put an end to that




Till next time, anyway. We had asses made of cast iron.

Re: Write a poem about something that actually happened to you as a kid.

Good evening hepcats and welcome to open mike night at the Harsh Mellow.

This first poem is one that opens some old wounds but provides some soul-screaming catharsis for my brothers and sisters of the soul ...

When I was small,
I showed on a doll
that I knew a friendly priest,
who got over-friendly to say the least.
But instead of going to jail, now he preaches out East.


(No, it didn’t happen to me. I became agnostic at a very young age.)

When I was young I became agnostic,
because I thought the church was caustic.
Uh ... something, something, something Dark Side. The Aristocrats!


I call this one “Banana Dance Romance.” This one is a true story.

As a teen I worked at a theater where we’d watch a movie.
I worked with a big-breasted girl who was groovy.
At work we would flirt ...
Then she lifted her shirt
and I got to see her boobies.

My mom always said that the mean old lady that lived next door was a witch, so I assume she probably had something to do with it.

My poems in High School consisted of rock song lyrics.

My friend bet a quarter
I couldn't fart on cue
That morning in gym class
Out rolled a poo

Kinda wishing Jim Norton was a member of this forum about now...I'd be interested in reading Monster Rain, the poem.
