The Muse of Poetry should not know that roses in manure grow. ~The Formula, Langston Hughes
You may write me down in history with your bitter, twisted ties. You may trod me in the very dirt, but still, like dirt, I rise. ~Still I Rise, Maya Angelou

Sticks and stones will break my bones,and words will also hurt me.
My specs are broke,
The fire's toast,
And the hungry hunters devoured me.

Hunters and kill went up the hill
to fetch a torch of fire.
Jack fell down,
didn't break his crown,
but set the whole island on fire.

The author's comments:
I wrote these poems for school when we were reading Lord of the Flies. The 1st one is from Piggy's point of view, and the 2nd one is just about the story.
