Ode to Kayce Dec'd.

Ode to Kayce Dec'd.

A Poem by ColinKarr

This poem mirrors Emmeline Grangerford’s poem from Huckleberry Finn, “Ode to Stephen Dowling Bots”. It’s a school assignment where we had to take a student and make a parody of Emmeline’s poem. Enjoy!

It was on a tragic night
As fateful as can be.
It was cuz' of foolish spite
And one small bumblebee.

Young Colin he did trip and fall
While Kayce stood by taunting.
She laughed at him while he did bawl.
Unaware that Karma's knocking.

One bumblebee buzzed 'round Kayce
And landed on her shoulder.
Oh, Kayce, why'd you laugh at he?
Cuz' now you won't get older.

The little bee flew up her nose
And crawled right down her throat.
She gasped for air, and cried, "Oh, no's!"
And tragically, she croaked.

Why, foolish little Kayce.
You could've passed this death.
The moral of this story?
It's better not to laugh.
