A SUMMERDAY AT THE SWIMMING POOL

A summer day at the swimming pool,
Women in their bathing suits,
Bearing their forbidden fruits,
Water glistening like a jewel.

Lifeguards like the judges rule,
And won't hear your refutes,
Though children still all act the fool
On a summer day at the swimming pool.

Biography of Joshua Dinkin


I grew up in a humble dwelling,
Filled with fighting, chaos, yelling!
The walls were thin, the rooms were small,
Through hallways we heard mother call.

I went to school and played with friends,
And never questioned to what ends,
Then I grew up and joined the army,
(Hoping that no one would harm me) .

Born in Boca, raised in Raleigh,
A life of fun and foolish folly,
And still I live in that humble dwelling,
Filled with fighting, chaos, yelling!

A Blue-Tinted Lizard


There's a blue-tinted lizard on the redbrick wall,
Where the green ivy grows and the brown leaves fall,
"O it's such a pleasant day, " say my playful little parents,
"Why don't you go outside where the brown leaves fall."
But I'm so tired all the time in my redbrick house,
And all I see when I look out is where that blue-tinted lizard used
to slither on the wall,
Where the green ivy grows and the brown leaves fall.

A Monster

A monster is bursting through the seams!
Cloaked in shadows! Drenched in dreams!
So hideous, yet so beautiful—
That beast with fangs and long-horned skull!
