ROBERT FROST IS STILL DEAD SO TEACHER MADE ME WRITE A POEM

by Erica Davis

Whose head this is I think you know.
His shins are in the forest, though.
You did not see me stopping here.
Just help me lift this last torso.

Your little brain must think it odd
To see some femurs but no bod.
It may–or may not–seem a chore,
But either way, I need more sod.

And what, prey, is that cold stare for?
You’re wishing you had locked your door?
Well, shut your face. I’m not all rotted.
Just stocking up the family store.

Those wounds are lovely, deep, and clotted,
Though, I prefer the whole carotid,
And only take from stores allotted,
Unless you know where yours are plotted.

Teacher’s Comments: Erica, please see me after class report to the Guidance Counselor office, immediately. 


I like school. There’s more where this came from. And even more. Are you cold, too?
