Word Doodlepalooza Day 2: Pocahontas Q. Fred edition

21Oct08

This Word Doodlepalooza post is from an Australian reader named Pocahontas Q. Fred. She submitted this piece and — Hey. You know, I am starting to doubt that it is her real name.

“best pet ever”

Like a 4′ ringleader,
He stood tall
retelling the rescue
to the curious crowds of
pretentious
art viewing
passersby
“I’m going to take it home and keep it forever and ever and ever”

as he grew taller
thriving
on our attention
his new pet wilted in the sun
his father stood awkwardly distant
silent
embarrassed?

“It’s real, see?”
(poke)
(poke, poke)
but the dead shark
declined to perform

  1. awwwwwww Pocahontas! Your (if you´re reading this) doodle squeezes my heart :( I love sharks..I think I´ll write a doodle about humans pushing daisies…:D

  2. There are not enough doodles about dead sharks.

    Excellent use of (poke)
    (poke, poke)!!

    Love it. :)

  3. It’s amazing what comes home as ‘pets’, isn’t it? My parents would have handed me my head on a platter if I had done that (definitely the ’embarassed Dad’). Great submission!

  4. Lol this is fantastic. I slept through half a semester of Canadian poetry and probably wouldn’t have if there had been such work in the curriculum
