Hanzleberry (Doughboyissweet) | 1065 comments You have until March 1st afternoon to post a story/poem and on the second and third of March we'll vote for which one we thought was best.

Please post directly into the topic and not a link. Please don't use a story previously used in this group.

Your story should be 300-2,500 words long. Poems can be as short or as long as you want them to be.

The topic this week is Rubbish (garbage)!

The rules are pretty loose. You could write a story/poem about anything that has to do with rubbish or has the words rubbish in it. I do not care, but it must relate to the story somehow.


Have Fun! :D

Rubbish is rubbish
trash is trash
but where do you find the treasure
in the piles of rubbish and trash.


Thomas (Marimbapanda) | 328 comments Lost Beauty

People,
are the cause,
of,
one eyed dolls.

People,
are the reason,
that,
puppets lose strings.

People,
have the blame,
by,
wasting that food.

People,
are why,
we have trash,
and or rubbish.

We always waste,
and never save,
the lost beauties,
that are now gone.

Their Son
by Sarah M.

My other self
sits on a shelf
in my closet, just low enough to see
My parents say it
will someday soon fit
and make me a much better me
Right now I'm a boy
who doesn't bring joy
by bringing home bronze and B+s
My mom wants a jewel
that shines in school
and Dad wants no pansies or wusses
So they fashioned a son
a just-perfect one
who looked not a bit like their own
With hope that I could
or better yet, would
transform to the angel they'd sewn
But years have gone by
and it's quite clear that I
will never fit my parents' dream
So today they replaced
me with that nice face
that child who's all that he seems
With the trash I went out
for they had not a doubt
that a new son it better than old
Now I watch through the door
the boy they love more
with blue eyes and hair of pure gold
The trash truck is here
my end is near
I look for one last goodbye
But their eyes are on him
and his small charming grin
as he lives a life that was mine.
