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

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
