There once was a head of activities,
Who had very creative proclivities,
She worked morn, noon and night
To bring others delight,
Through her contests, art and festivities.
One week was a theme based on flowers
To highlight one’s photographic powers
“Shoot a bloom that you like
“When you’re out for a hike
“Rather than just while away the hours.”
This week was a contest for photos,
For artistes, rather than dodos,
’round the campus they strolled
Snapping orange things quite bold
That elicited “oos,” “awws” and “Oh-Ohs.”
Now I’ve captured a variety of orange things,
From front doors to bird flowers with wings,
But the one I like best,
Is a car light at rest,
With its awesome design fit for kings!
This poem has side-tracked me from working,
But my job I must not now be shirking!
Paper work must be done
Even if it’s not fun
Or the devil will surely be smirking!
