Poor Diet Can Dull Your Sense of Smell

Sniff Life
by Rachel Hoyt

Wake up and smell the roses,
One of life's loving scents,
A blossom which proposes,
Our senses can be bent.

Go on and squeeze a lemon,
That fruit which smells so clean,
A nutrient filled weapon,
That scrubs systems and scenes.

Get out and walk a garden,
An orchard or a field,
Ask fat to beg your pardon,
Sniff life where health is sealed.

This study concluded that eating too much fat
kills your sense of smell. What do you think of that?

The Proposal To Split California Into Six Separate States

by Rachel Hoyt

They say that we should cut up
My state, the land of gold - 
They yearn for a pick-me-up,
A rule to be extolled -
They want safe towns and wise schools,
Smooth roads and sunny skies - 
They're flush, funded by moguls,
And fueled by selfish cries -
They want to save a great state
By splitting it in six -
They're half trying a bit late
To create a quick fix.

possibly wishing such a split would make some lands seem even more great.

Everything's Fishy In The Fish Business

Fishy Business
by Rachel Hoyt

image by olovedogs via

Wild fish,
Farm fish,
White fish,
Hued fish -

Finagled -
Slick impostors
Fill the rosters.

Mild fish,
Charm fish,
Fright fish,
Lewd fish -

Proposing -
It's all fishy,
Smelly, squishy...

Are you sure the fish you eat is the type you think it is?

What Does Our Flag Mean To You?

The Flag
by Rachel Hoyt

The pattern - how it flies,
With every gust it tries,
To appeal to the skies
To billow its glory.

A symbol - red, white, blue -
That flutters inside you
To unify minds who
Write liberty's story.

Are you familiar with all the flags in US history?
