Poetry Humor: The poet writes again. Um, sort of.
Comic by Sara Barkat, age 14.
Buy a year of Every Day Poems, just $5.99— Read a poem a day, become a better poet.
Sara, you know, if you use Pig Latin, the lines will always, always rhyme. It’s guaranteed.
And the blank paper? I’m trying that for my post for next week. I think it will save me a lot of time on the first draft.
Thanks for coming back to the comic frames. I’ve missed you.
You made her laugh, Lyla. I love it when she laughs
Maybe we’ll have to start copying her in on the morning banter. Does she sound like you?

Will the wax on the floss allow birds to pick their words more carefully?
From which tree(s) will birds get the best rhymes? How high do they have to be?
Who broke the record for most lines of Pig Latin on a blank page?
What do I have to promise to get an interview with a floss-using bird that waxes poetic on Twitter?

Love these comic frames!!
