Hello Friday! I’m excited about today not because it’s Friday but because my children are testing for their next belt level in Tae Kwon Do. Aiden is in Tiny Tigers and is going for his orange stripped belt. Parker is in the intermediate class and is going for his blue belt. They both have been practicing very hard. So big day here. Okay, now my mommy moment is over, back to the poetry.
Today’s prompt – A large amount of something
Big ol Basket of Candy
I got a big ol basket of candy and everyone wants me to share
No one ever wants to share when I have a basket of broccoli
But I get a basket full of candy and everyone’s my friend
Everyone wants a bit of my big ol basket of candy
I don’t want to share
I want to keep this candy all for my self
May be I’ll hide it or say I lost it
But they all still know I have it
I wonder what Mama would say if she knew I didn’t want to share
I’m sure it would make her sad
She taught me better than that, she would say
But I want to make my candy last
It’s such a beautiful big ol basket of candy
Would you like a piece of candy?
Well there you have it. My attempt at a large amount of something. Have fun with your poem today and I hope to see it posted here.
Have a great day and I’ll see you tomorrow.
