Oh covid

Oh covid,

You are so frightening,

Your dangerous

Virus locks

Me in my house,

Nowhere to be seen.

Your behavior

Is unacceptable

So cruel

And so mean

Oh Covid

Oh Crocs

Oh Crocs,

You always know how to rocks

You can even wear socks

Oh Crocs,

Your enemy is Birkenstocks,

Sometimes a fox could wear

your Crocs

You rocks

An Ode to color

Oh color,

you are so beautiful,

Your vibrant colors fill

my world,

Red, orange, yellow,

green,

blue and purple

You are the color of

my rainbow.

yellow you are

so bright,

Black you are so

empty

An ode to The Bay

Oh San Francisco

Bay,

You are

home away from

home,

Your beautiful Golden

Gate Bridge

Brings

back

So many

Memories,

Oh San Francisco

Bay, your

sweet refreshing

air fills my sky

Oh San Francisco

Bay.

Ode to butterflies

Oh Butterflies,

Your wings dance in the wind,

Your colors flash as you

Confuse you predator,

You were once a caterpillar,

Reala’ than

Golden Birdswing from

Manila

Oh Butterflies.
