Once in a dream
I heard you scream
"Go forth and Write
or I'll shall bite"
So I wrote
about a boat
that sailed away
one day to play
The boat fell down
Without a sound
And that's all I wrote
about that darn boat

Thank you, and Goodnight :angel:

I recently read a poem, in a poetry book (funnily enough), and it puzzled me, maybe you can help me uncover it's secret! It went like this:


Big
Black
Bat



Any1 got any suggestions? hmmmm.....!:confused:

1. All three start with "B"
2. All three are one-syllable words
3. 2 3-letter words frame a longer word in the middle.

That's all I got out of it.

Well, if you look at the structure of that poem you can easily discover that the author is not talking about the animal as it may seem, no he is talking about a big black bat - as in a baseball bat. How do I know this? Well - think about it - "animal" starts with "a" and therefore doesn't fit the "b" pattern that Jason so cleverly pointed out. Baseball, it starts with a "b." Now, we can also see that the author doesn't like the game of baseball. He uses the descpritve word "black" which we all know is an archetypal pattern for evil and no good. Had he said a "white" bat - we would have known immediately that he loved the game, but, he does not. Now, the last word, "big" - obviously baseball was a large part of his life - and since we already know that he doesn't like it, it can be said that it was forced upon him, probably by his parents. Therefore, this poem is really his cry for help telling us all about how his parents forced him to play baseball as a child and it ruined his life.



there you have it - me expert analysis of

Big
Black
Bat
