This semester.

Well as I am sure you have noticed the time I have spent blogging has diminished and it's because the Spring semester has started. This is my last semester until I start my Masters!!! Yippee. This semester also is much more enjoyable. I am taking "The American Cinema", "Educational Psychology", "Proposal Writing" and "Creative Writing". Since I have started taking the creative writing course my creative juices have been flowing and I remembered some that I have written in the past. I wanted to share with you the following poem that should bring a smile to your face. It is called an imitation poem which means it is in the same form and style of another. This poem actually won an award and was published. Enjoy.

Imitation of Gwendolyn Brooks'
"We Real Cool"

We Real Cool Too

The Stay-at-Home Moms:
Seven shopping at the mall

We real cool. We
Miss school. We
Lurk late. We
On a girl's date. We
Shop for toys. We
No longer look at boys. We
Gotta call. "But, We
At the mall." We
Gotta go. Cuz
Daddy don't know.
