A poem about Michael by elina on 21 November 2007 8:04pm
On one of our creative writing's lessons we had to write a poem and I couldn't come up a better subject than Mr. Palin. I also like to share it with you, so here it comes! (It has no title...) Maybe I'll send it to Mr. Palin also, since he was the inspiration.

"If you were a fruit, you would be a coconut
So I could think you are something exotic
And when you're exotic, you're more interesting
And my parents would definitely hate you.

If you were music, you would be rock
So I could get energy when listening you
You wouldn't mind if I sang along
And my sister wouldn't want you.

If you were a book, you would be a book of comic poems
So I could laugh at your stories
And you would make me smile
And my brother would be content.

But you are Michael Palin
So I can only hold a cover of your film in my hands."

(My teacher liked it, at least he has written 'very good' under it. He also said that my writing is becoming montypythonish, which I think is a huge completent from a British person.)

Elina, that was great. I enjoyed your calling your teacher a British person LOL!

Very creative.

It's a great poem, Elina! I like the lines about your family at the end of the verses.
