I went to Home Depot's appliance department to look for a new microwave.
The bouncy ball ricocheted off every wall in the room before breaking Mom's favorite mug.
I looked at my son with chagrin after he lied to me.
He could tell there was no sense in obscuring the truth; Dad could always tell when he was lying. You will perform this poem, with expression and movements, on Tuesday, November 20.

1 The turkey shot out of the oven
2 and rocketed into the air,
3 it knocked every plate off the table,
4 and partly demolished a chair.
5 It ricocheted into a corner
6 And burst with a deafening boom,
7 Then splattered all over the kitchen,
8 Completely obscuring the room.
9 It stuck to the walls and the windows
10 It totally coated the floor,
11 There was turkey attached to the ceiling,
12 Where there’s never been turkey before.
13 It blanketed every appliance
14 It smeared every saucer and bowl,
15 There wasn’t a way I could stop it,
16 That turkey was out of control.
17 I scraped and I scrubbed with displeasure
18 And thought with chagrin as I mopped
19 That I’d never again stuff a turkey
20 With popcorn that hadn’t been popped. rhyme scheme the pattern of rhymes in a poem
