A Choir Concert to Remember, Pantoum for the Terrible Poetry Contest

All I wanted was to sing
I didn’t know I’d be puking
For, songs are usu’lly not sick’ning
Unless you’re nervous and lock your legs

I didn’t know I’d be puking
From the back row, on an upswing
Unless you’re nervous and lock your legs
My peers were angry and dripping

From the back row, on an upswing
For, songs are usu’lly not sick’ning
My peers were angry and dripping
All I wanted was to sing

Yes, this happened. Fifth grade. I still don’t know if I was sick or simply locked my knees. At least I didn’t hit the audience.

This was the least sickening gif I found…

Pantoum is a fun form to try. Go on; write one up and submit it for this week’s Terrible Poetry Contest.
