Okay, I realize it's Friday, but sometimes I get the biggest kick out of my children's homework, that I had to share this one with you. It's an actual English assignment. Write a bad love poem...

Bad Love Poem
by my 15 year old daughter

Your handsome silky hair is no bore,
so dark and beautiful like my hard wood floor.
Your skin so soft to pet
like my pretty new baby blue carpet.

You have a personality so funny and wack
like the funky shag carpet from the 70's way back.
Your brown eyes so full of adventure and happiness
like a multicolored rug that gives a sense of liveliness.

Your hands are very dirty and rough,
kinda like the tile floor that thinks its so buff.
Your touch warms me from the inside out
like the newest softest carpet that was just brought about

Your strong tan body is such a nice sight
like my shiny linoleum floor I just got tonight.
How I wish I could stay wrapped in your arms forever
like a lifetime carpet guarantee I couldn't even imagine, ever.

How cool that she stuck with the floor covering theme throughout!

Thanks for sharing, Robyn.

I didn't think it was bad . . .which obviously shows you what I know about poetry.
