Chapter 8

One of my favorite songs of all time is "Color My World" by Chicago and anything by the Moody Blues. "Color my World" has a great message and was also the theme of my senior prom. The Moody Blues is the favorite band of both my wife and mine. A picture I consider poetic would be just about any picture of Demi Moore. (I said I was old not dead.)

One of the most poetic videos I can imagine is one showing a running back slashing through the line of scrimmage, bobbing and weaving, and breaking tackles for a 95 yard touchdown run. As far as actual poems go, I like so many it would be impossible for me to pick one favorite, but I do have some favorite poets. Langston Hughes and Robert Frost are two of them.

A. The first personal poem you will write is an acronym using your name. An example follows.

Serious about a lot of things Teacher who really enjoys working with young adults Easygoing most of the time Vacillates when it comes to making big decisions Emotional roller coaster -- up and down a lot Never breaks a promise Christian who is always trying to become a better person Rock 'n' roll fan -- especially 70's and Christian rock 'n' roll Obnoxious sense of humor Science fiction and fantasy fan Self-centered too much of the time.

You have never met me, yet once you read this acronym poem, you know me a little better. Your assignment is to write your own acronym poem using your own name.
