Some Poems for Mr. Bemis

So Mr. Henry Bemis liked reading and the such, and it was a shame when he broke his glasses after he had all that Time Enough at Last to himself for reading. Too bad that’s called one tough luck.

But he made an idea to have a contest and write poetry out of just the titles from episodes of The Twilight Zone, and he made it into ds106 Writing Assignment 1071 Poem Made with Twilight Zone Episode Titles.   I saw that he had written poems, and then my True Friend John Johnston wrote a poem in the comments and some more on his blog, and them Mr. Tom Woodward wrote one called “Mr Denton on Doomsday” on his six-million dollar man bionicteaching blog post Twilight Zone Titles Poetry.

All of this got my little brain thinking and so I picked up my iPad and made these poems for you.

The first is sort of autobiographical. Maybe you will get the meaning behind it. It is called “The Whole Truth.”

The Whole Truth

The Howling Man Back There?
Execution!
Dust!
The Grave!!!

Next, I wrote one that tells what it is like to be discriminated on because you are not as tall as you would like to be.   It is called “The Little People.”

The Little People

Once Upon A Time
The Dummy, Caesar And Me, Nick Of Time & The Invaders
The Little People
Five Characters In Search Of An Exit
What You Need? Escape Clause!

Two Twenty-Two
Four Of Us Are Dying, Person Or Persons Unknown
Little Girl Lost.
One For The Angels!

In the end I think it is sad because all of her True Friends are dead. and then she is dead. But it is okay because she is with the Angels because she was so good. And was nice to her True Friends.

Then, I wrote a really short poem. I hope you like it. It is optimistic. and about Friends.  It is called “The Lonely Living Doll?

The Lonely Living Doll?

Young Man’s Fancy!!

So there you have it, Friends. Poetry made by me from titles from Twilight Zone episodes.

Neat!! 

Okay. Bye! 🙂

P.S. But write me how much you like my poems in the comments first. Thanks!
