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