good morning, cyberspace!
Apparently the moment you tell the world that poetry just “isn’t your thing” is the moment a poem decides to stick itself into your noggin in the middle of the night whilst you’re trying to sleep.
Today’s post was actually supposed to be a StoryTime With Kenzie! kind of deal, but unfortunately for me, my immune system decided to fail me yet again by giving me the second cold I’ve had this cold and flu season! Yippee!
yes i’m bitter.
As you can probably guess, this means that literally all my blogging and bookish plans for the final stretch of January were tossed completely out the window, along with about three million snotty tissues and all my faith in humanity.
But–thankfully–I am now starting to feel better, which means that with any luck, I’ll be back to my usual blogging schedule shortly. But as for this week, you guys get to read a really weird poem that lodged itself into my brain in the middle of the night on Saturday and kept me from sleeping.
because I literally have no other ideas, peasants, don’t judge me.
Ahem. I mean, because I’m super creative and wrote a poem that I would like to share. Obviously.
Let’s get to the poem.
“It’s flat!” you say.
a poem by Mackenzie Keene
“It’s flat!” you say. “The earth is flat!”
Good sir, it cannot be!
The earth is round,
the proof is sound.
On this you must trust me.
“It’s flat!” you cry. “I swear it’s flat! I saw it with my eyes!”
Now, please, my friend,
this has to end.
Do stop these awful lies.
The earth’s a face—it must be round.
I’m fairly sure of that.
But tell me, sir, when last you’ve seen
a round face that was flat?
The earth is flat! At this I’ll scoff.
You must have hit your head.
For if the earth was as you say,
We’d fall right off the edg—
TALK TO ME, PEASANTS!
That’s it, folks. That’s the show.
I’m really sorry for such a smol post today, but I think we can all agree that, with all the giant posts I’m usually flinging at your faces, this is a very refreshing breather, amiright? (also this is literally all I could come up with under such short notice, so I mean? it’s better than nothing?? maybe??) Now that I’m beginning to get back into my normal routine, though, I’m planning on getting some blog posts written up and scheduled for future use. I was doing really well with backlogging before this, so I’m determined to get back on track now. XD
But anyway, now that you’ve read the poem, let’s hear your thoughts! What did you think of my strange little poem? Have you ever had a poem lodge itself into your head while you’re trying to sleep? (this is a first for me. it was weird.) What kinds of poems are your favorite? Really deep and inspirational, super light and fluffy? Weird with a hint of humor? and most importantly. . .
DO YOU THINK THE WORLD IS FLAT OR ROUND???
As always, let’s talk about ALL OF THE THINGS! down in the comments below, my friends!
Until next time. . .
