I don’t like cats
They meow and scratch
they never like to be pet
they keep you awake
with their stupid purrs
they cuddle in your bed
they’re so soft and fluffy
they’re fun to play with
so cute and adorable
I love my cat!

This piece was composed during the May 5th session of the Science Creative Literacy Symposia. During this day, students performed a few biology experiments that examined change (DNA isolation from Kiwi, and a pineapple enzymatic degradation of jello). Afterwards, students were then asked to create poetry, again examining a subject in light of different perspectives. More pieces from this class can be seen here.
