Alex's Poem: "The Spelling Bee"



Song:  Our Destiny

Group:  Liquid Cinema



After Alex's disappointing loss at the County Spelling Bee...
when he later got home from school...
he announced to us that he would be writing a poem about his experience.

It is for extra credit in his English class...
and for submitting it to a poem contest...
he will earn points of credit...
and if he wins...
the credits will double.






Alex has always dealt with disappointment in his life by writing a story about it.
This was the first time he had written a poem.

Many years ago...
when he had witnessed his mother swatting a fly...
he got very upset...
even though his mother explained that they can transmit disease.

Alex feels deeply about all life...
so he had written a many page story about a fly...
and he gave the story a happy ending  :)


The poem could only be 500 words maximum.

His poem is 497 words.

I think it was a very imaginative effort on his part.

He wanted to turn a disappointment into a victory.

A valiant effort indeed!
