I hate my hormones. I also hate stupid WoW puggers and being yelled at by such. *grump*

Dunno what this counts as...it isn't really fanpoetry, but it sort of isn't just original since it was for a [livejournal.com profile] spnland challenge. Anyway, for the [livejournal.com profile] spnland_media challenge 004: Frankenstein-IT LIVES! (create a monster challenge).

Title/Monster: Shel (With Apologies to Mr. Silverstein)
Media: written/poetry
pairings/warnings: none
note: tied for 2nd




I once saw a monster
that I swear was the scariest
It'd frighten your parents
and your big sister, Harriet
It'd even terrify
your dumb brother, Larry, when it
grinned and showed him its teeth.

It's got horns on its head
and horns on its elbowses
It's got seven long arms
it bends in millions of poses
It's got eyes on its face and
eyes on its noses
and eyes on all of its three dozen toeses
It's got eyes on its thumbs
and eyes on its bum
so if it's snuck up on
by somebody dumb
of course it always knowses.
And then it bites them in half with its teeth.

Its skin's pinkey-purple
and its hair's purpley-pink
It's stripey in orange
and green spotty, I think
And its mouth is all red
from all the stuff that it drinks
and no, I don't mean red Kool-Aid
It's as wide as a house and as tall as a tree
and all of its claws are painted aquamarine
It's got stomachs where all of its organs should be
so it's a heartless (ha ha) eating machine
which is why it's got all those teeth.

What?
You want to know about its teeth?
Are you sure?
You're sure you're sure?
Okay...

There's jagged ones for gnashing
and ragged ones for gnawing
and all the other teeth take turns
nibbling, crunching, and chawing
plus a few it just uses for munching and chomping
And the fangs up front are for noshing
They're ginormous and fabulous
numerous, pointy, and stabulous
like toothpicks to jab us with
off some monster party tray
They're the best in the nation at kid mastication
and they don't ever need any flossing.

So
I hear this monster
really wants to meat you
It thinks you'd be a wonderful
snack
I mean friend.

This is a perfect read-aloud piece for children. I especially loved the implied audience in the teeth stanza!

Sweet, that's an awesome compliment, because that's exactly the effect I was hoping for. :D I kept reading bits of it out loud while writing it, because I wanted it to sound like the kids' poetry I loved growing up. Thanks! ♥
