There is dirt on my socks,
Dirt, grass, mold, maybe some lox.

I can't get it out,
I want to shout.

I must remove it with my lips,
I try and try but it just slips.

I can't use Tide,
That would ruin my pride.

'Twas a dare,
To remove all this hair.

As I wring with my gum,
He sits on his bum.

You know what?
This dare came from a nut.

I'm tired of sampling this dirt, grass, mold, maybe lox,
I have found a better use for these dirty socks.

I have found that strangulation,
Is a vexation.

As is trying to wash footwear with one's tongue,
There will be no hair in his lung.
The one who made me clean these cursed socks,
Will find around his throat dirt, grass, mold, maybe lox.

The last thought going through his dying brain you can see,
Will only be.

The thing around his neck,
Smells like heck.




Moral; Don't dare someone to clean their socks with their mouth.

Thanks. :) But I don't really write much poetry. There is another funny one about two playmates that I wrote in fourth grade when my mom told me I had to write a couplet, but I don't know where it went. :/

Hahahahaha! Good job Aeliss! This was hilarious, and I loved how you didn't just come right out and say that she shoved the sock in his mouth. You left it to the reader to figure that out, and I salute you for the brilliance of it. Please post more poetry on here!

Thanks! My poems usually start out normal, then I change them and make them weird.

I write because it silences the voices in my head.

Haha, it's so humorously ironic that you say using the Tide would ruin your pride before you describe licking them with them your toungue.  I wasn't sure whether to laugh or cringe, but either way, it deffinitely kept me reading.  Very interesting...  Very interesting indeed.

Thanks. :) I didn't work very hard on it, it took about 10 minutes. My poems are always kind of like this.

Haha nice job! The flow was a bit iffy in a couple places, but as a lighthearted poem, I enjoyed it and it made me giggle :)
