Country Boy eating Corn By Norman Rockwell



Gran stands over me whilst I eat my corn gee, I’ve hated corn since I was born, but my Grandma says it's good for me so she’s cooked a huge pile for my tea! Gold kernels get stuck between my teeth all my friends laugh at me especially Keith. He’s lucky he doesn’t have to eat the stuff, I’m sick of eating corn I’ve truly had enough! I wish that I could be like all the other boys I have to tow the line, mustn’t make a noise, I’ve lived with Grandma since I lost my Ma and Pa So in all honesty my Grandma’s a real super star!

I can’t imagine hating corn! That platter full makes me hungry! So true the kernels get stuck between teeth as do their popped cousins! <3 Kim

I always looked forward to the early picked corn... sooo sweet and juicy. I love your story line in your poem. I, myself, am struggling with one for number 2.. I think I'm struggling to understand what "Realism" is in as far as poetry. I've read examples but they have only confused me more. lol Best of luck !! I'd give this a top reward !!

You wrote about corn without being corny! That must be a winner! Good luck! (n.b. raw corn is a better treat) Aloha! Rico

Hi Jan, You penned a good one for the contest theme. It seems as though you was in his head. I enjoy corn but I must admit I don't like when it get stuck between my teeth. You sure do well in the contest. I wish you the best of luck in the contest. Enjoy the rest of your day:-) Alexis
