English 9 poetry project



He throws together,
Two all beef patties, special sauce,
Lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions,
On a sesame seed bun.

The bun as soft as feathers,
Topped this burger like
A cherry on a sundae.
The sweet smell of
Special sauces filled the kitchen.

Placed in a box, And set aside.
Tossed in a bag, and handed out the window,
I’m given to a customer in the drive through


The Road not Taken

Life decisions always lead you to more choices you will have to make and you wont be able to go back to change your decisions. The Road not Taken by Robert Frost is a symbolic poem where the two paths the man comes across symbolize life’s decisions of which he will always come across in life.” And looked down one as far as I could to where it bent in the undergrowth;” this quote explains how he was thinking about all the possibilities that will come with this decision and where it will take him in life. Thinking of every possibility about the possibilities of his actions or in this case the path he shall take. “I doubted if I should ever come back.” This quote gives insight about how once you’ve made a decision you have to live with it and make new decisions, because once you’ve made a decision you cant go back and change the decision you’ve made you have to live with it and continue making more choices and decisions. “then took the other, as just as fair, and having perhaps the better claim” the decision he made perhaps had the better outcome than the other decision, after thinking the repercussions of what might happen after which path he would have to take he chose the one that could very well lead him to a better place after making perhaps the better decision. This poem is a closed poem because it is very organized and each stanza has the same rhythm. “Because it was grassy and wanted wear” is personification because grass doesn’t want wear, the poet gave the grass human qualities to bring the poem together.

Sammy the Sperm

My name is Sammy I’m a little sperm, my whole story started out when I was born in the testes hospital when I was first born I had to stay in the hospital for a few days. Went to color the testes hospital I went to go visit my mom and dad and the rest of my family and the epididymis a nearby town. After a short visit I hopped on the vas deferents highway on my way to vaginaland. The vas deferents is a really long highway it passes a large lake called lake bladder. After being on this highway for so long I’ve started getting a little hungry so I took a stop over at the Seminal vesicle dinner restaurant for a bite to eat. I got back on the highway and took the next exit onto urethra way. When I got to the beautiful vaginaland I made my way into uterusville, turning right onto oviduct road where I would meet my love Olivia Ovum. We soon plan to have a baby and grow our family ur even that is a long, hard process. Which will hopefully continue to grow. And that leads me to today finished my story leaving more to come in the near future
