Short Poems

The Stinky Cheese
Oh, stinky cheese,
Your smell is quite displeasing.
No one wants a piece,
Your scent makes us all teasing.

The Annoying Fly
Buzzing, buzzing, in my ear,
The annoying fly won’t disappear.
It lands on my food, it’s such a pain,
I wish it would fly away, oh so vain.

The Dirty Sock
Oh, dirty sock, so full of holes,
Your odor lingers, it unfolds.
No amount of washing could make you clean,
I’ll toss you in the trash, you’re so obscene.

The Boring Lecture
The teacher’s voice is like a drone,
I wish I could be on my own.
The lecture stretches on and on,
My eyes grow heavy, I start to yawn.

Medium Poems

1. “Ode to Burnt Toast”

Oh burnt toast, how you make me cry
Your bitter taste, it’s no lie
I cannot seem to make you right
You always come out black as night

I try to scrape away the char
But it seems to be everywhere
I cannot salvage what’s left
My toast is ruined, I’m bereft

Oh burnt toast, how you mock me so
I long for a slice that’s fresh and gold
But I must learn from my mistake
And not leave you too long at the stake

2. “The Unrequited Love Letter”

I pen these words with a heavy heart
For I fear that we will never start
A love that burns with passionate flame
For I am just a moth to your game

I watch you from afar day by day
Hoping that maybe you’ll see my way
But you only have eyes for another
And my heart sinks lower and lower

Oh how I wish that you’d take a chance
And maybe give me a second glance
But I fear that I’m just a foolish dreamer
Lost in my own unrequited love meter.

Long Poems

The Ode to Mediocrity

Mediocrity, oh how sweet
In your arms I find retreat
No need for fame or great success
No pressure to constantly impress

Life is simple, life is fine
Doing just enough to get by
No need for constant innovation
We’ll just stick to the same-old rotation

Why strive for greatness, oh why bother
When average is perfectly proper
No need for outrageous flair
Just a comfortable, safe affair

We’ll settle for the middle ground
Where expectations are not profound
We’ll blend in with the crowd
And never need to stand out proud

Mediocrity, how good you are
No need for excellence or a shining star
We’ll just stay content in our averageness
And never pursue greatness or any extravagant excess.

Ode to Mediocrity

Oh, Mediocrity, how sweet thy taste,
A life half-lived, never a waste.
For why strive for greatness, when simply okay
Can grant us contentment throughout the day?

How nice it is to work a nine-to-five,
Never questioning if it’s how we want to thrive.
A steady paycheck and a cubicle space,
We happily accept this humdrum pace.

Why bother with passion or taking a chance
When complacency will suffice, no need to dance.
The mundanity of life is surely enough,
Why aim for higher and risk being rebuffed?

Oh, Mediocrity, how we adore
The predictability of our daily chore.
We don’t need to stand out, no need to excel,
As long as we remain in the middle and tell ourselves we’re doing well.

We’ll never know the thrill of victory,
But at least we won’t suffer the agony.
For success requires effort and dedication,
When we can simply coast through life with little hesitation.

So here’s to you, Mediocrity,
Our constant companion and guiding deity.
May we never stray too far from your embrace,
For living life on the edge is surely a scary place.

Let’s keep it safe, let’s keep it bland,
For in the end, isn’t that what we’ve planned?
A life without risk, but also without the highs,
But hey, at least we can say we tried.

But tried what, exactly? Oh, never mind,
Let’s just stick to the middle, we’ll be just fine.
For you, Mediocrity, are our true love,
And we’ll happily settle for you without looking above.
