life as a kiwi is tough because going through the intestines sucks.

growing stabs knifes through your fuzzy skin, your flesh being ripped apart by jagged white monsters sucks.

trying to portray the stereotype of the “kiwi” plump, juicy, tasty, sucks.

knowing that your mother tree grew you to be eaten sucks.

life as a kiwi sucks.

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.
