Treasure Island

Matthew Roeser


Marvelous


Marvelous, what a word,
A marvelous word
Marvelous should be my name
With a name like that
I could be Mardi Gras king instead of just Matt
I could tame lions 
Or enter contests of skill
Walk on elephant backs
Or levitate at will
And I'd never once take out the trash
I'd hire a service 
And pay in cash
I'd fly from town to town
in a giant floating ship
The only problem
As far as I can see
Finding Friends
Who are as marvelous as me.

    Laugh Out Loud. That's what I did when I came to the last line this is a good light-hearted poem with some humor interjected and a good bit of creativity. I like the Mardi Gras king and giant floating ship go together as I think of a float in the Mardi Gras parade. Nice poem man. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
