Steve, the envelope please! And the Challenge goes to:

YOU

Listed here are the titles of the 5 movies nominated for the 2000 Academy Award! Your challenge is to write a poem using ONE of these phrases. You may write five poems...these poems do not have to have anything to do with the movies! Just use the phrase:

The Green Mile

American Beauty

The Cider House Rules

The Insider

The Sixth Sense

Good luck!

When I was young, I oft get drunk,
...down at the Half-Moon Bar,
I'd be too soused to make it home,
...a driving in my car,
So I'd take off a stumbling fool,
...a kid with a goofy smile,
But half-way home, I'd get real sick,
...In midst of the green mile.

well.. give me a break here.. its late...

I can see dead people walking along as ghosts
I can smell the smell of death on any coast
I can hear people talking, alive or dead
People think I'm nuts, but i swear, I haven't lost my head
I've got a SIXTH SENSE and I'll try to help
Just please don't blow your brains out, ahh the smell


This is the best I could think of, give me a break.

There is another part of me
One I keep hidden  
From prying eyes
Sometimes even  when
I'm  smiling
The insider crys
I don't like to admit
My  failings and  weakness
Call it foolish pride
So I lock it away
Where no one  can see
Somewhere  deep inside
I may appear to be
standing tall ...
Though I'm really on my knees
The insider creates the illusion
And so predicts the
front that everyone sees
Not many dare to question
Or to call my bluff
It's probably safer...
Because then they'd have
to admit they too live
with an insider

Poet DeVine challenged this
so I gotta do it and be Miss Priss

It might take me all night
And I could be here a while
Trying to use a phrase called THE GREEN MILE

Now call me a little fruity
but im your average white female,
an all AMERICAN BEAUTY

Im one of THE INSIDERS
with THE SIXTH SENSE
I get a bad feeling that puts others in suspence

I got a place that I go
but their all fools
They post a sign on the door
"THE CIDER HOUSE RULES"

Now the last verse had me going
and it took me some time
but i did it, I did it
Poet DeVine


LOL really dumb poem but I used them heheheh

She is the best of the best
Sleek to the touch
Comforting in every way
Never a disappointment
Reliable and trustworthy
The envy of all my friends
She is my american beauty
My little red corvette
