'I'm not a chicken' - Mrs. Jenny Matlock's Saturday Centus Week 47

Jenny Matlock

Scroll down past my Saturday Centus text for week 47 to read Mrs. Matlock's instructions. Here is my SC-text for week 47:
Johnny, Mickey, Tommy and Louie were out kickin',
Telling little kids 'You're a chicken! You're a chicken!'

Little Timmy Thompson was dared to climb a tree.
Johnny climbed first, said:'Look at me! Look at me!'

'You're a chicken! You're a chicken!' they chanted all four.
Until suddenly someone, Timmy's mom, opened a door!

'Scram you nasty, rotten clods of dirt!' Timmy's mom quietly said.
And Johnny, Mickey, Tommy and Louie almost wished that they were dead.

The boys disappeared, while Timmy climbed the tree.
'I'm not a chicken!' he said, 'Look at me! Look at me!'

Wordcount according to WordCalc: 97

Best wishes,

Mrs. Matlock's instructions:
Welcome to week forty-seven of Saturday Centus. How are you today? Feeling complacent? Feeling like I'm going to throw another easy prompt your way? Well... Technically... I could... BUT then you would get all bored and say, "Wow, that SC thing is getting really boring because she never challenges us!" So... Since I would never, ever want our friendship to part ways out of boredom, let's try something different this week. How about poetry. The rhyming kind. Like Dr. Seuss...on the loose...with a a caboose. Hey. I saw that eyeroll. C'mon. It'll be fun. I will give you an easy prompt for inspiration, OK? The prompt this week is... I'm not a chicken... What do you mean that's a hard prompt? That is a totally easy prompt. I could have used the word 'orange' which has no words that rhyme with it whatsoever. I gave you the word chicken which of course rhymes with ... ummm... ummm... OK, I know a lot of rhyming words...I just can't tell you because that would be cheating. You can use this prompt and UP TO 100 additional words to write a poem in rhyme. Just keep your poetry PG and try to visit as many of the other links as you can! Please display link button or just a hyper-link back to Saturday Centus. Be careful to link your SC URL to the Linky and not just link to your main blog. Please e-mail me directly with ???'s or ask your question in a comment and I will do my best to get back to you as soon as possible. Feel free to link up anytime between now and next Saturday!

Great job Anna !

I loved it that Mom came to the rescue (nasty clods of dirt, loved that too ) and then the little boy still went on to prove to his friends he wasn't a chicken...peer pressure free !

Ann said...

cute story. sounds like typical kids to me. Why is it that some seem to take so much pleasure in picking on other ones

Mariuca said...

Isn't that the way it always is with peer pressure? ~Ames

Anna, This is a precious poem! I can see the action, and you rhymed it so perfectly. Thanks for the chuckle and for pointing out to all of us that bullying is a serious problem - worldwide.


~Lissa said...

Cute. You really said a lot of story in under 100 words, and rhyming no less. Good job!

jabblog said...

Well done, Timmy - and Timmy's mum!
Excellent rhyme:-)

I loved this Anna. It had almost a feeling of an Aesop's fable to me.

Loved the rhyme and the whole thing, start to finish.

Thanks for a fabulous entry this week.
