Poem Meme Thing  
When you see this, post your favorite poem in your journal

I have several, but this one is the shortest (and the only one I have memorised):

My Sister Ate An Orange by Jack Prelutsky

My sister ate an orange,
I'm astonished that she did,
she swallowed it completely,
she's a disconcerting kid.

My sister ate an orange,
first she chewed it for a while,
then digested it entirely
with a silly sort of smile.

My sister ate an orange,
it's a novel thing to do,
then she also ate a yellow
and a purple and a blue.

Intersting poem... is it supposed to say "are" twice? I'm clinically bad at discerning things from poetry. Sad for an english teacher, non?

No, it's supposed to say "ate". I just fail at typing. After typing up nearly 15 pages of classwork last night my typing skills just died.
