Teacher Tales Poetry: Sawyer and Finn

A new poem for you today.

Sawyer and Finn

Me

And Bubblegum Taylor

Long- jumped

Delicious Sunday mud puddles

With cap gun pistols and

Long branch rifles,

Rode Schwinn motorcycles

And watched cotton candy clouds

Float away.

Tom and Huck Never had it so good,

For all they had were apples

And whitewashed fences.

But Me

And Bubblegum Taylor

Secure in a packing crate fort

Dripped ice cold peach juice

Wiped clean with shirt sleeves,

Kept a watchful eye out

For pirates and Indians.

Widow Douglas and Becky

Never could catch us,

For neither could drive

And run fast enough.

But Me

And Bubblegum Taylor

At twilight,

Jumped on card spoked bikes,

Pedals furiously pumping,

Headed for home and

T.V. dinners.
