My favorite poem is called "True Story" and this is how goes,
This morning i jumped on my horse
And went out for a ride,
And some wild outlaws chased me
And they shot me in the side.
So i crawled into a wildcats's cave
To find a place to hide,
But some pirates found me sleeping there,
And soon they had me tied
To a pole and built a fire
Under me-I almost cried
Till a mermaid came and cut me loose
And begged to be my bride,
So i said i'll come back Wendnesday
But i must admit i lied.
Then i ran into a jungle swamp
But i forgot my guide
And i stepped into some quicksand,
And no matted how hard i tried
I couldent get out, until i met
A water snake named Clyed,
Who pulled me to some cannibals
Who planned to have me fried.
But an eagle swooped me up
And throu the air we flied,
But he dropped me in a boiling lake
A thousand miles wide.
And you'll never guess what i did then-
-By Shel Silverstein
One reson why i like this poem is because it has alot of really random things that he does in it and the at the end , he just all of a sudden dies.Another reson is because its
really funny and it is very creative. i also thought about if hes ded, then how is he telling this story. Comment on this blog if you think you know the answer!
