Last week, I shared how I came to write some found poems recently.This week I’m sharing another found poem, again aimed at about 4th-5th grade.
Today’s found poem is called "I’m Sort of Sorry About What Happened While I Was Walking My Dog," and the source material is an online review of Mario Kart DS.
I’m Sort of Sorry About What Happened
While I Was Walking My Dog
Mario grabbed you
by the crotch.
That’s not a good thing.
But take a good, hard look.
It’s near impossible to find
any fault with Mario.
First, when a human refuses
to play catch,
that is staggering. Stunning.
Second, that banana peel,
and Mario powersliding…
Shame on you!
So go back to basics.
Then don’t be surprised to see Mario
barreling down affectionately on you
