Cleaning My Closet

Bouncy balls, dress up clothes
Plastic boxes, rubber toads
Ballet shoes and ice skates
Icing from last year cake
I found a hundred dollars now that’s a LOT of money
Along with old dog collars that were looking kind of funny
Some old play cars, jewels and rings
Some squished up looking yellow things
Some Polly pockets, a picture I’d drawn,
A plastic fish and a Dairy Queen coupon
An embarrassing love letter I never sent
Some old oatmeal that looks like cement
My Uncle Bob’s flipper fins
Expired codes from webkinz
Some unsharpened pencils
About fifteen old stencils
And old calculator
A stuffed alligator
Two fluffy pillows
Nine pussy willows
Two drum-sticks from dinner,
A card that said winner,
My old soccer jersey,
Some moldy beef Jerky
My Grandpa’s magic hat,
My brother’s baseball bat.
An old rusty flute,
A whoopee cushion that doesn’t toot
An old tape
A pink drape
Dried out pens
Rubber hens
A makeup kit
A baseball mitt
A test paper that I flunked
This stuff is mostly junk
Three novels I already read
I guess I’ll just stuff it all under my bed.

This brought a smile to my face, and I love the ending. Creative rhyming; simple but obviously thought about. Cheers!

Nice job! This is simple, yet very creative! This could turn into a catchy jingle, like the ones you see on T.V. Love the last line!
