I just took my LA honors semester final and bombed the hell out of it because the teacher never gave our class the extensive study guides she did the others, so...
Here's the poem I had to write for the last bit of the final. Basically, the test was over a shit ton of stuff, the last sections being Poe, Whitman, and Dickinson. We had to write a poem that emulated the styles of one of those three poets.
I tried doing Poe with the internal rhyme, but I obviously failed. I can't be all sophisticated with my poems. Bleh.
Anyway. A tribute to the earth. It's bad. But hey, I only had ten minutes to do it. So I'm not complaining.
Also, "Mother Earth" by Within Temptation is an amazing song.
