#sol22 March 21 This Stye in my Eye

Slice of LIfe
Part of Slice of Life by Two Writing Teachers March Slice a Day Challenge! I’m slicing every day this month. Thanks for stopping by!

When something is bothering me
I like to write a little bit of poetry
Then I can complain and whine-
It’s more fun if you make it rhyme!

I have an annoying stye
in the lower lid of my left eye
this added much dismay
to my sunny, spring otherwise lovely school day

Before this stye came along
there were plenty of other things wrong
enough stuff to make anyone queasy
but blaming the stye? That’s super easy

The world is full of hullabaloo
All sorts of real trouble people are attending to
Much Worse than my having to be courageous
with a little stye that’s not contagious

But this stye
In my eye
I can’t deny
It’s enough to magnify
the problems I can’t specify

  1. I don’t know what I love better- you, the fact that you incorporated “hullabaloo” so effortlessly into this poem AND rhymed it, or the powerful message you weave I to this “silly little poem, OR you. Hm. I love them all!

  2. What a clever way to complain about a stye. I had a recurring stye in the fall, and it was incredibly annoying, especially since I was wearing a mask to go out and the eyes were all you could see on me. I appreciate your amusing poem.

  3. Such a funny way to complain about a stye. I had a recurring stye last fall, and it was so annoying because i was wearing a mask, and all you could see on me were my eyes. I appreciate your amusing poetry.

  4. (sigh)!!!
    Hot compress you must apply!
    If you need me I’ll be your “fall guy”
    That’s all for now, Buh-bye!!
