One Minute Slam Poem

The Heavens Above



Outside in the open grassy green field

There was a large ancient great red oak tree

A bird with the striped colors of Garfield

The bird lived it’s lengthy life and was free


The bird flew in the bright blue open sky

When it flew above the fluffy white clouds

The tall ugly kids heard crying near bye 

They screamed madly because the sound was loud


But what they didn’t know was that that sound

Was from a depressed kid who lost a bird

That was ultimately bound to be crowned

As the king of their amazing rare herd


Unfortunately the birds life had died

And it was sent then to the sky to lie
