We are known for our football, bratwurst, and beer,
Iridescent blue lakes with fresh waters, crystal clear,
Summer's sun blazes hot enough to make skin burn,
Cheese producing dairy farms are around every turn,
Our bright autumn leaves change their colors with ease,
Near spring, the scent of lilac floats upon the breeze,
Snowy winters, with temperatures below zero degrees,
In our green forests, raccoons and deer have a home,
Near the roadside, wildflowers grow wherever you roam.
Harley-Davidson was born, where the eagles fly free,
Wisconsin is as close to heaven, as home can be.
Kim Merryman's contest - "Tell Me About Where You're From"
T hose beautiful little girls you tried to kill
A s they waited in their school van at the end of the day
L ive another day to remind you, once again, you've failed!
I n terrible suffering, yet they shine for the whole world to see
B e it known, innocent blood cries for better tomorrows
A nd like the dust beneath the feet of these little ones
N ever will you rise to the heights for which you murder to attain!
Lingering waves surge into the shore.
Ominous glory, it rages for a score.
Vivacious peaks beautify its core.
Each one different, then the one before,
Once you have seen the power it holds.
From then on, the greatness unfolds.
Terrifyingly beauty raptures your mind.
Hearing its sounds enthralls us to find.
Earnest thoughts we once left behind.
Oceans beauty is spellbinding at dusk.
Creating fresh aroma, sometimes musk,
Every day delivering, treasures of mollusk.
After a day at the ocean, you may enjoy cusk.
Not one person denies the beauty so brusk.
it got me thinking about life got me thinking about us and the plans for the future
you with me and i with you.
Adoration of sunlit bold high plains
Frozen herds torn from creation’s page
Rocking tribal fears—who’s got the reins?
Innocents are hurt while tempers rage
Call for voices high and voices strong
Africans say hide when things go wrong
W e went up to Exmouth, it took us five days
I nto hot furnace winds, the days were ablaze
N o relief was in sight for north we were bound
T here it is so rare that cool weather be found
E veryone goes there, cause fish can be caught
R eports of good fishing make these places sought.

Over organic originals
Emotions enormously emerge
Through trident times
Relic rejoice recant
Yes yearn yourself
Solid structure's sanction
Open optional opinions
Understudy understand unity's
Poetry's passionate's pulse
Because beauty bestows
Over oversights objection
Widespread whispers wanted
Leaving lasting longevity

CONTEST: Tell Me About Where You're From
SPONSOR: Kim Merryman
< Better grab out the coco-butter
Even those designer shades
All hearts will begin to flutter
Cause were off to the glades
Hear me right for I did not stutter
Best hurry up before the sun fades
Look for keys later father did utter
All aboard now we got it made
Nothing like ocean's viewing I rather smother
Knowing once again to return upon it's raid
Each and every year oh my brother
Think I will even bring the poor old maid
Because she's like no other
In her class she passes the grade
Now get your head out of the gutters
Grow up cause noone is getting laid
Oh my goodness good crothers

Entry For Linda Marie's
Beach Blanket Bingo
Flamingos pink and perky love wading in the glades,
Lazing on white sand beaches you'll see tourists on display.
Oranges grow in groves off'ring juicy sweet splendor,
Rainy days combust into lightning flash and thunder.
Interesting marine life, such as Manatees, dwell here,
Days of blazing sunshine draw many Snowbirds near.
Alligators do abound - just want to make that clear!
To sum it up, Florida can be a tropical paradise.
A great place to live if you don't like snow and ice.
(For those of you unfamiliar with the term "Snowbirds": It's the nickname for the Northerners
who come spend their winters in Florida's warmer climate)
