       This is similar to my poem Dandelions (in which the lawn is a hydra-like monster and dandelions are its heads), but I thought it would be cool to describe them like people. You know, a bunch of blonde women coming to live on your front lawn (I have nothing against blondes, but they HAD to be blonde because dandelions are yellow). I'm a weirdo.

    Make the font bigger!! Double Spacing Back to recent posts.

    dotsWar of the Dandelionsdots

    You can chop off my blonde head,
    but it will grow back,
    and I'll invite my other tow-headed friends,
    of which there are many,
    and we'll drink your poison,
    but we won't leave.
    This is war, my friend.
    Eventually our heads will be blown off,
    but you won't get any satisfaction,
    for it'll be the wind that decapitates us
    after our tops turn white and dry,
    and the pieces rain down like bullets,
    but that will only bring more of us.
    You'll never win!

      very different. short, to the point, and well written. evil, vengeful dandeloins. I like how you compared it to war beacause they are irritating little buggers. one thing...tow-headed is supposed to be two-headed maybe?

      as patton said-"no one ever won a war by dying for his country. you win by making the other poor [censored] die for HIS country."

    You left off the maniacal laughter at the end. mwah ha ha ha ha! ;-)

    I just let 'em grow at this point. lawns are man's invented evil [and i'm horribly allergic to grass, which might color my viewpoint].

      that is a bit twisted, Amy, but i like it! i always have a hard time picking dandelions 'cause they are, after all, a flower... i can't pick a weed if it has a flower on it! these sound like mutant ninja dandelions! they're like that, though, aren't they? they just keep coming back! i like how you describe the white fuzzy things like bullets raining down! you have a very creative and twisted mind!

      I realize I talk about this movie a lot, but only because it's a classic: I'm reminded of the movie "Heathers" in this poem. In the way that you can get rid of someone who's ruining your life but someone will always come and take his place. That's what I got from this poem.

    The lighthearted tone allows the reader to become very attached to the whole work which is awesome. One thing I'm not so sure about is the exclamation point at the end. On one hand, it adds to the whole care-free tone, and on the other hand it seems too casual for the undertone. Just something to consider. Lovely poem.

      dandelions grow everywhere and they get more and more each year. you can do whatever you want it doesn't help. but I like them. for me they're nice little yellow flowers. anyway your poem was cute and very original. I could see an army of little dandelions fighting and kicking...

      This is really cool, I wish I could write in a more descriptive and less obvious manner, but hey thats me. You really hit it with the description of the wind decapitating the heads. Groovy write! Beckie

      this is truely unique. super cool in it's originality. the only thing I saw that I thought would make it cool is in the line:

    "But eventually our heads will be blown off"

    to me it would be a little better if you took out the "But" just for repetitions sake. Because it's used in a few other lines and in the one right after this one.

    Other than that. I super enjoyed it.
