DAILY POEM "WHAT ARE YOU LIKE"



Your like a torch that shines in the night
your like a baby who's smile is so bright
your like an Angel sent from above
your like all that is good about love.

Your like a storm that gets out of hand
your like a farmer who tills all his land
your like a flower that smells so divine
your like a rebellion that gets out of line.





Your like a factory without any production
your like a moonbeam without its construction
your like a rainbow without a pot of gold
your like a house that cannot be sold.

Your like a picture without any frame
your like a person without his own name
your like a cloud that turns into gray
your like a buddy with nothing to say.

Your like a swan that does not swim
your like a haircut that doesn't need a trim
your like a walrus that doesn't have teeth
your like a river that flows underneath.

Your like a lion without any roar
your like a handle that doesn't have a door
your like a parcel without an address
your like a model out to impress.

Your like a cowboy without his gun
your like a child who has lots of fun
your like a Monster that no one fears
your like a "weepy" without any tears.

Your like a tiger without any stripes
your like a secretary who quickly types
your like a token without a machine
your like a traveller hoping he has been.

Your like a bright day without any sun
your like a joke without any pun
your like a microphone without any sound
your like a friend I am glad I have found .


This is a poem called "what are you like" a phrase used in the UK all the time, in a lot of contexts but mainly a funny one, people living in the UK will know what I mean, we often say "what are you like" when someone does something funny, or bizarre.

now its your turn, go on have a go, even if it doesn't rhyme its cool... here are your four lines, fill them in :)

Your like a
your like a
your like a
your like a

I bet you come up with some real beauties.....

  3. you are like a tree
    that I can stand under in summer heat,
    you are like a diamond
    that are buried under the earth to be found,
    you are like a piece of paper
    that are to be written on with passion,
    you are like a brother
    who always spoil and protect his younger sister...

    wow,
    you have run wild and far on this poem!
    I mean I am amazed about your huge imagination!
