WHS School Poetry Winner with School board

Thomas Bemus, 11th grader at Woodlan Jr. Sr. High won the 11th grade level of the Allen County Library Poetry Contest. Thomas was recognized by the EACS Board and he also read his award winning poem to the board!  Below is his winning poem:

 

Today an assignment was given to me.

The contradiction of it was plain to see.

The work so contradictory.

Seemed rather odd, for you or me.

 

This poem I was now commanded to write.

Its real, true purpose was of clearest sight.

To take new creativity.

And turn to derividity.

 

The rules of rhymes only exist to abhor.

It doesn't need structure to avoid such a bore.

The power is in the words, true.

So write what is truest to you.

 

By: Thomas Bemus

 

CONGRATULATIONS THOMAS BEMUS!
