A silly poem for the 9's Contest
|9 friends joined together at number 9, 9th Street
to celebrate the 9th birthday with 9 sweets each!
9 presents they brought, and 9 cakes too
on 9 party plates, each with 9 candles of blue.
Each of the 9 had 9 buttons on their 9 party hats
and each carried a basket hiding 9 cats.
Now each cat had 9 kittens and I know that I saw
each one of the kittens had 9 toes on each paw!
There were 9 star decorations and 9 favors too,
9 pens and 9 notebooks and 9 candies to chew.
Then each of the 9, called 9 friends more
who called 9 friends: there were party-ers galore!
Soon each of the 9 rooms in this way crowded place
had 9 x 9 people crammed into the space.
They decided to move to 9 Party Square
and continue the Gala 9th Birthday Party there.
9 neighbors called up to complain of the noise
and 9 cops arrived; someone said, "C'mon boys.
Join in our fun, we're all dressed to the 9's."
"9" said they; giving us 9$ fines.
The party lasted 'til 9 after 9: we all had a blast-
for 9 full hours did the party last.
9 x 9 buses took us home full of cheer,
be9 and happy-can't wait 'til next year!
