We’ll be posting writing that was generated at the WITS Teen Lounge at Wordstock. This poem is by Kay, one of our “teens of all ages” who began with the prompt: Write a poem using the words crocodile, manatee and mermaid.
A mermaid called her friends to tea
the dolphins spread the word
A crocodile and manatee
were two that hadn’t hear.
A fuss was made and feelings hurt
but mermaid’s heart was kind
she asked the octopus to squirt
a message for all time.
The crocodile and manatee
shall be my special guests
whenever I call friends to tea
they’ll come before the rest.
