Another nomination for the August IBPC: cheer.gif

Hi Lori,

I would like to nominate Daniel's poem A Door to Curiosity for IBPC. It can be found by clicking here. It's an amusing and deftly written piece about long past experiences, with which many may identify.


A Door to Curiosity

Walking the halls of his high school last week,
something made his curiosity peak.
Daybreak peeked in from a place where he swore
he'd never noticed a doorway before!

Faintly a song had emerged from the mist
seeping out under the door... which was locked.
Nearly in shock, he looked 'round to enlist
help to gain entrance to where he had knocked.

No one was there, so he battered and kicked
'til he became so worn out, he sat down
right where he was, heaving hard; he was licked....
Suddenly out of the space came a clown

mocking the rube like Uriah the Heep.
Thoroughly humbled, I woke from my sleep.
