For disliking poetry as much as he does, this 5th grader is pretty good at writing it!
I hate poetry!
Poetry looks like a demon rising.
I don’t want to do this.
Poetry sounds like nails on a chalkboard.
I still don’t want to do this.
Poetry smells like skunk spray times 20.
I still don’t want to do this.
Poetry tastes like rotten eggs with human brains.
I will never do this again.
Poetry feels like being frozen by a freeze ray.
Doesn’t everybody hate poetry?
Panajotis wrote this at an Adventures in Creative Writing field trip that focused on slam poetry.

We would love to see an entire book of poetry from this student! Talk about capturing real emotion!
