Alright, time for me to put my thinking cap on.

The Lunch Lady and Her Many Troubles

Wash my hands first!
Get out the dough and roll it out..
Chop chop chop...
Spread on the sauce...
Slice slice...
Add some of these...
And a little of this...
Into the oven! Next dish!
Bubble bubble...
MMMMMMmmmm....that smells delicious!
Sprinkle on some of that over there...
Just a touch of this here...
BEEP BEEP!
Oh, it's ready!
Ahhhh, look at that!
Am I all done for today?
Looks like I better bring out the food....
Here you are children, take a bite!
...
You call this good?
I'm allergic to that...
Can I have more?
This isn't how my mommy makes it...
What is that!?
Gimme some more!
Yuck! This is gross!
I want more milk!
...
I can't take it anymore! I quit!

I know it is a little abstract, but that was what I was aiming for.

Umm...lets see what I can make up on the spot...

New Girl

I walk into class,
on an ordinary day,
But everything is different,
Mainly in one way.

She stood there laughing,
with her new friends.
She saw me and smiled,
And for my heart it made amends.

Her smile warmed me up,
And heat-sealed my heart.
My hurts and pains were gone,
Now she had played her part.

And so I spent that day,
Learning about who she was.
Ignoring people's comments,
And all of their faux pas.

And then came a music lesson,
In which she pulled out her flute.
And her music enthralled me,
And now I held her in high repute.

We spent hours playing together,
Her flute and my sax.
Our music filled the whole school,
And warmed people hearts - to the max!

And so the day ended,
And my heart was a buzz.
I couldn't wait for tomorrow,
As anyone in love does.

Do you like it? It is a complete fantasy...

KingRyan, I think that that was quite beautiful. It painted a complete picture in my head! Good job!

I'm sorry my loyal fans (+1 full-of-myselfiness bonus!), I just didn't get around to it this week.  I'll compensate by making an awesome poem next week...

Up before the birds,
Coffee, coffee, coffee!
Sorry, mom.
No time for breakfast.

Hope I finished all my homework.
Stupid math class.
Am I ever going to use
Derivatives in real life?

To be, or not to be...
Are we really doing Shakespeare?
You realize no one understands this.
Can't we just watch the movie?

Oh no. Please not dodge ball!
Bruising, bleading, broken bones.
Did you have to pit us
Against the football team?

Bouncing chicken nuggets!
I really need to start
Packing my own lunch!
Laugh it off with friends.

No ablo espaniol.
I barely speak English!
You realize I'm only taking
This to get into college.

I don't need a Physics lab.
No disrespect to Newton,
But I think everyone knew
That things fall down.

Fifteen minutes. Ten. Five.
Don't start a new topic!
No one's paying attention!
Three, two, one. Freedom!

That should be 'No hablo espan(~)ol'

The (~) refers to the squiggle about the N!
