Look Out! The Poetry Bus is All Over the Road!

All right Bus riders, I'm at the wheel of TFE's Poetry Bus again. Please fasten those nonexistent seat belts & we'll be on our way. Thank you.

One of my very favorite poetry bus poems that I’ve written was the one where we had to all start with the same first line. So I’m copying that idea. There are no rules about the number of lines and rhyming or not rhyming. Simply write a poem that starts with this phrase:

I am a crooked line

I’m cheating, because I’ve stolen that line from a poem I wrote back in January. You may go looking for it if you want, but I’ll post it later (don’t want to influence you guys). So, write a poem, post it, come back here & give me your link in the comments. I’ll post all the links at the bottom of the page. Let's roll!

  1. That was one of my favourite Buses too! It was the "Stella McCartney/Stella Artois" one, wasn't it?

    I sense a bit of Dr. Seuss coming over me. King of a Dr. Seuss/Mrs Hide! (silly)
