High Fallutin Edumacation

Today in school, Mini me wrote a poem.

We've been using the poem/song "America" in his language lessons for the last week. Today we learned about rhyming scheme and meter, and part of his lesson was to make his own list of rhyming words using the same scheme. Then see if he could make up sentences using the same meter (syllable count) as "America."


So, at the risk of being carted off for providing a lousy education for my kid, I thought I would share his pithy poem with some of my closest friends: you.


(Read as if singing the song, you know, "My country 'tis of thee....")



Hello, can you see me?
I like to drink sweet tea.
Do you like beef?

Star Wars has got a Luke,
He makes me want to puke.
Darth Vader wants to duke...
wants to be chief.



Ta da!!


No amount of tax dollars can pay for that.

What an accomplished child!

Any child who can turn "America" into "Do you like beef?" and commentary on Star Wars gets my seal of approval!

He's AWESOME! :)

Ok, I hate to tell you this, but the first stanza is plagiarized. I know this because it's the bumper sticker I have on my car.
Too funny!
