(from Writer’s Digest Wednesday Poetry Prompts: 572-Write a double poem…)
Riding in a humongous double-decker bus
Really made me want to put up a fuss
My mom forced me onto this crazy old contraption
And now I’m having some kind of nervous reaction
This is the biggest automobile on the street
Truth be told, I feel like a big freak
Is everyone out there staring at me?!
I hope this super embarassing ride ends soon
Because this hideous bus makes me feel like a buffoon
Now the scrawny Indian driver just turned up the music
In fact, it sounds like it came straight from Egypt
Once this old clunker stops to let me off
I’ll do everything in my power to avoid getting back on!
