TITLE: Grog the Blog Monster

A monster lives in County Blog,

A frightful thing, his name is Grog.

He feeds upon the internet

Whatever words that he can get.

He hacks into each private place,

Eating words not full of grace,

And so you know he’s very fat,

For there is always lots of that:

Angry rants? He licks his lips

(Not so much the cooking tips).

Gossip rags? A conne-sewer

Of Juicy tidbits on a skewer.

The only thing that makes him sick,

Oh, let’s see now, take your pick:

Family updates filled with love,

Lessons from the One Above,

Or any useful, wholesome thing

Sends him whining to his king.

“Me hungry, feed me more

The trashy words that I adore!”

The king then rubs his dotcom chin,

“Yes, you’re looking mighty thin…

Prince Facebook is so unaware

I’ll send you chomping over there!

Consume the pics of smashed up toe

And details of a garden hoe.

Don’t forget to try and steal

The posts about the evening meal,

Anything that seems a waste

And takes up lots of cyberspace.”

Grog rejects this bold suggestion,

Facebook gives him indigestion.

So he stays in County Blog

Eating trash, this monster Grog.

I love the simplicity and wit in this poem. It could be a YA/adult picture book, if there were such a thing. You make a good point in an entertaining way.

Creative and fun to read. Great use of the topic!

This is great. The rhythm and flow is perfect. I smiled at some of the play on words.

My only suggestion is a tiny one. It might be more pleasant to the eye if you divided it into verses and just double-spaced between them.

I think you did an awesome job and are quite creative.

Very creative approach to a destructive issue. Loved the pun you've tucked away in conne-sewer. Very clever.

I love this! Your creativity is off the charts. Your humor is delightful and your message is truly great!
