    My favorite poem was “My Puppy Punched Me In The Eye”. I liked it so much because this poem was using personification. The personification was that “My Puppy Punched Me In The Eye”. Dogs can’t really punch people in the eye.

    I really enjoyed “My Dog Fred” because it was about a dog and he can’t do tricks and it has a twist that is really funny and a smart choice by Nesbitt. In the end Fred the dog was raised by another animal.

    I think that my favorite was, “My Teacher Took My iPod”. I liked this one because at the beginning the teacher said no iPods but when she listened to the music, she said the boy could bring it but he had to give it to her.

    I liked the poem, “Basketball Is My Favorite Sport”. Kenn Nesbitt does lots with his poems. They are really funny and unexpected. For example, In my favorite poem the coach gets hit in the nose and slams into the wall. When the kid shoots and scores! Then the poem states, “The coach got hit in the nose, but hey we won!” Thats why I loved the poem.

    The poem that I liked the most was “My Puppy Likes the Water”. I choose that one because it is humorous because he describes the puppy, a lack of fur, sharp teeth, a fin. Then at the end, says that he bought it at an all shark store. It turns out that his “puppy” is really a shark, but he doesn’t know it!

    The poem that I enjoyed the most was “All My Excuses” because at home I make excuses that I am doing my homework when I already did it and is playing video games instead of homework.

    My Favorite Poem Was “My Teacher Ate My Homework”. That was my favorite poem because it was funny when In the last paragraph the teacher ate the homework because that’s how he grades cooking homework.

    The poem that appealed to me the most was “I Tried to Take a Selfie” because the whole poem is based on a very funny phrase: “A face that could crack a mirror.” Kenn Nesbitt is basically writing a story from the point of view of someone who’s face is so ugly that it broke almost every electronic device in her house. Nesbitt used common technology to literally “bring” this phrase to life. This popular subject is called a “selfie,” and Nesbitt had easily made it into a hilarious topic. You probably wouldn’t be able to think about it like this unless you had the poetic mind of Kenn Nesbitt. He had transformed one of the most used words in 2014 to a topic you could laugh about.

    Hello Mrs. Onsrud! I love to check in on former teacher’s blogs and this one one so much fun to read! It was amusing and inspirational. I loved “My Dog Fred.” It was so silly and a good poem at the same time. Kenn Nesbitt’s rhyming was so great. His poems gave me some inspiration for words that rhyme. Thank you!
