Mad Libs Poetry

Mr. Robert Lee Brewer has some funny ideas at times. Late last night he came up with the idea of a Mad Libs style poem. I decided to play along. I’ll put the prompts first and then my selections so that if you want, you can play along also. Personally I think Mr. Robert needs to get a little more sleep at night. Winking smile

It all went okay until I left the Christmas theme. If you do the poem, feel free to post them here or head over to the My Name Is Not Bob blog and put it in the comments there. Either way I would love to see them.

I’ve saturated the trees
with tales of my present.
There’s nothing left for me to open.
Every toy, every child–
they all scream to me!

Build their inner blocks, their
naked gadgets. When you sit
your cat, I hope
they clean up.
