Our favorite foods

This week, poets at Poe Middle School in Ms. Agboola’s class wrote about foods they loved. Here’s what they created.

How to Eat Chicken

Eric S.

7th g.

Don’t get messy

Start eating up

Pick it up with your hands

and put it in your mouth


Crumbs on your shirt

Crumbs on the floor

if you make a mess

you won’t get anymore

Blueberry Blast

Savannah M. 

6th g. 






They’re small, round, juicy, and sweet.

If I could I’d eat them every day.

I like blueberries the most

in Blueberry pie.


I actually had a bowl of them

the other day

cold and fresh,

I could never say no to them.



Hayley B.

6th g.


I enjoy eating them

the fresh fruit tastes so good

every time I eat it

my mood brightens





They’re so good

The yellow/green colors

eating it in my room


It’s flavorful

just right for me

I love these fruits

the fragrance

it smells just like fruit.


Oh Chicken

Dubem A.

6th grade

I love chicken so much.

I love chicken so much.

All that juice tastes so good

I love it so much it

makes me wanna sing

all day.

When I sing it reminds me

of the first day I had chicken.


How to eat ravoli

Amara B. 

6th g.

If you’re sad,

take a bite,

anyday now.


All you need is a fork,

a mouth,

and an appetite


there are no



or stems.
