Oh, Rail Candidate,
Your beard is as fluffy as a kitten
(or, more likely, a cactus).
Your top hat is as tall as the sky,
and stores all of your marvelous and crazy ideas.
Your words of wisdom won our war.
Oh, 16th President,
We thank you!
- Group poem by Corynne, Chesney, Ava, and Annika
Ode to a Giraffe
Oh, long-necked horse,
Oh, wondrous beast,
You are taller than a mile tall pencil.
You are as brown and yellow as a moist, chewed on pencil.
Your purple tongue is as rough and moist
as a moist, chewed on pencil.
You legs are beautifully skinny,
like a brand new #2 pencil.
Oh, pencil-like giraffe!
-Group poem by Daniel, Andrew, Arusha, and Paulina
