‘bribble bribble/Down the quart’: Lousy Language #1

This week we took a look at e.e. cumming’s poem, [love is more thicker than forget]. If it sounds like lousy language, it is! Made up words and all figure into this modern poem and it was with those instructions (‘use the worst grammar possible, be inventive, and show emotion), that the 8th Graders came up with these gems, pre afternoon Valentine Dance, of course! Enjoy!

[Blood Is thicker than water]
Joseph A.

[Blood is thicker than water]
Never betray your fam.
Family comes be-fo anything
Family is erything.

[Blood is thicker than water]
Yo, fam loves you.
Don’t snake your family
Family is everything.

bribble bribble
Down the quart
runeing az fas
az eye can.
Skoring a tree
Praized wit
almighte glorie.

[Remember to Forget]
Millie C.

Remember to forget
To stand when crawling up the walls
As was Romeo when fell Juliet
The walking standstill dolls

The sea with water run dry
Trees as tall as a pages side
The bright darkness everfied
Broken cars along for the ride

[(Music)] is more better than all things
Caleb P.

[(Music)] is more better than all things
more [brighter] than our sun
more (peaceful) than a pig is pink
more better than TV
[(Comforting)] as the clouds are
(Loud) like the traffic
More better than all things
