Barbecued Chicken

By Anna C., Lincoln Park Words@Play Program
Poems That's Weird, Grandma

If you ever run into
a piece of barbecued chicken
run away as fast as you can to China.
If you get tired on the way
take a plane. If they give it to
you on the plane, start a food
fight. It will be fun. Just
make sure no one throws it
back at you. Then get off the
airplane and make hotel reservations.
Enjoy China, but remember
barbecued chicken is evil.

Black and Red

By Val B., Lincoln Park Words@Play Program
Poems That's Weird, Grandma

Black will taste like black cherries.
Red will taste like fake blood.

Black will feel like black hair.
Red will feel like blood.

Black will smell like worms.
Red will smell like blood.

Black will sound like crows crying.
Red will sound like someone bleeding.

Black looks like a shadow.
Red looks like a sunset.

Black reminds me of night.
Red reminds me of blood.

A black thing at home is a black PS2.
A red thing at home is a dead fish.
