A Haiku or Two, for Going Back to School

September  5, 2014

Our thoughts on food and cooking
In seventeen beats. 


Shop the Story

Nilla wafers are
Superior to all snacks
It's a proven fact. 


10:30 AM,
Time for lunch. The whole place smelled
Like ripened string cheese.

Are you inspired to write a poem about going back to school? The comments below are a safe space to express yourself.

Back-to-school shopping<br />Meant new Lisa Frank folders<br />And scented markers.
