Here is one that I wrote last year for a school assignment. We had to write a golden shovel poem, in which the last word of each line was another work. Of course, I had to make it Beatles related.

I listen to the universe and

Feel bright colors in

My mind as the

Query soars in my head; Is this how everyone will think in the end?

As I whisper for an answer the

Rain reaches out with love

Whisking you, floating you

Coming to take

Me away from reality, down the endless abyss of my soul. Is

Just talking to the stars enough for equal

Thoughts? I dig endlessly deeper to

Satisfy the

Neverending search for meaning. I love

Communicating with beings of my own as you

See the universe make

 

Looking back, this is quite cheesy. ahdn_paul_01

Dear Diary,
Today I woke up having dreamt about being stuck at an airport.
After that, I had leftover sausage rolls for breakfast.
This was followed by finishing a puzzle with my grandma, which annoyingly had a piece missing.
That is all so far today diary - it's only 10AM!

Dear Diary, 

Today I drove on a white road behind a white car spewing white water that matched the white clouds filing the white sky. Somehow I didn’t die. Also, I built a tree.

The End

Love one another.

Dear Diary,

Today I logged onto the Beatles Bible, having seen that Starr Shine? posted the new Beatles Academy assignment. I then needed to do my homework, but came back to write this diary entry. Since this our first time talking, I would like to say that I like trees. 

Signed,

Bagism is a concept by which we measure our pain

Bagism is a concept by which people cannot form prejudice against others because of their bodily appearance as people are inside a bag.

Bagism was intended as satire against stereotyping, as it is impractical to perform many tasks with only your head outside of a bag.

Two advocates of Bagism were John Lennon and Yoko Ono. They were believed to, at times, consume chocolate cake within bags. Personally, I am wary of Bagism, as I fear suffocation. There is a reason they print “keep away from small children” warnings on plastic bags.

Love one another.

Oh no I was going to do this one as well

 

*Ahem*

 

Bagism is a stupid publicity piece that didn't really achieve anything but generate column inches for John and Yoko where their absurdity was more discussed than the message of bagism. Waste of time and effort that could have been spent doing something more productive like I don't know taking care of his son.

 

My story:

 

Once upon a time there was a land called Beatlesbible.com/forum Land. This land was mainly populated with lovely fairies and elves who created a pretty and peaceful atmosphere even when arguments arose the fairies and elves would calmly sort it out among themselves without needing the judgement of the Overlords. From time to time, the forum was plagued by people who would write a single post in the 'Pimp Your Stuff' section, generally a poor cover of a beloved Beatles track and then promptly disappear, never to be seen again. While many fairies and elves had called Beatlesbible.com/forum Land, many had left the Land to go to other stranger places such as IORR.org Land and Universe.absolutebritney.com/forum Land- splitters. The remaining fairies and elves formed a close unit where many giggles and skips were had. Any new fairy or elf was warmly greeted into the mix and would be just as cherished a member as any of the really, really old ones that joined in like 2010, like that's practically ancient history. Undoubtedly Beatlesbible.com/forum Land was a very warm corner of Sir Tim Berners-Lee's creation and long may it continue!

The End

That's ok, Anyone can do any assignment whenever they like to bring up points. And anyone who hasn't joined and is interested can jump in at any time. 

 

132/142 isn't a bad score at all.
