Finish This Poem – “Yoyos”

Yoyos made a comeback
I thought that you would know!
Some people love to flick them
Up high and then down low.
They spin and twist and twirl them
They roll them on the floor,

(Can you finish this poem? πŸ˜€)

  1. My mishaps with the yoyos
    Would fill a book of lore

    I thought that when I was grown up
    I wouldn’t yoyo any more
    Thought that when I became adult
    Yoyos would become a bore

    But that was all when I was young
    And foolish — all before
    I found out they have made
    A yoyo game that you can score!

    So now I’m back — I’m on a
    Veritable yoyo binge
    Even though the sight of me
    Makes all my neighbors cringe

    Injected it luminously
    Using my syringe
    And then I added dingle balls
    Hazard tape and fringe

    Now all you yoyo champions
    Had better anticipate
    The loss of all your titles
    To Robbiemon the Great!

    1. That was an emotional rollercoaster!

      Like, really, it took me up and down!

      Up and down, over and over again!

      I’m trying to think of a good metaphor for what it was like… things that go up and down… but I just can’t think of anything! Anyway, you get my point.

  2. A Spectacle on Street – Robbie Yates / John Davison

    Yoyos made a comeback I thought that you would know! Some people love to flick them Up high and then down low. They spin and twist and twirl them They roll them on the floor,

    Bystanders seem incredulous

    Just hear them cry β€œEncore!”.

    She sends one horizontal

    Another spins behind

    You cannot quite believe it

    Her skills have been refined

    Children stare intently

    As the many cords retract

    They’re stunned by what they witnessed

    Was it fiction, was it fact?
