Sleeping Poet


Beans have eyes but you can't see them
Spiders don't hurt they're trying to help
Bees are helping too just watch your fingers
Fish plant beans but they're seaweed beans
Everyone plants beans, everything plants beans
Don't worry about rose bushes, just don't touch them
                                                   - Liam

  1. Kid's more right than he may realize. Great picture, great poem.

    Beans. Who knew? I'd like to talk to the fish about the seaweed beans :)

    Bravo, Liam!

  2. that poem frickin rocks, like making the kessel run in 12 parsecs, just watch all the beans, the methane gas production could destabilize the bee population ultimately destroying all known life

  4. Genius.

    But I am a little disappointed there's no mention of them being the "magical fruit, the more you eat the more you..." well, you know the rest. :)

  5. Somehow, the 'help' that spiders provide never occurs to me when I am sprinting away from them.

  6. That is a terrific poem, of which I can relate to since beans are one of my favorite foods. Not seaweed beans but all the others.

  7. What do you think is the last thing a bean sees? And do you think fish have good recipes for their beans? Wake the kid up, I want to know.

  13. I guess I never really thought about what fish put in their gardens...until now, and luckily the answer has been provided! A well deserved nap! So cute...so funny! :)

  14. The depth of the passage is amazing. Yes, watch your fingers around bees.

  15. Very poetic! What's even better is that I could understand it. I know what he means about the bees. I was stung by eight of them when I sat on their nest and it wasn't in the finger! Great going, Liam! Love the photo, too.

  19. brilliant...one of my favorite simpson episodes, bart is writing "beans are neither fruit nor magical" on the black board! is he really asleep, or did you have to glue his eyes shut and nail him to the bed so it would look that way?

  21. Aww, that's cute. And he looks like a little angel (remember that face next time he superglues his fingers together or takes the brillo pad to the side of the car)

  22. Cool beans! What a great poem. And I guess he got all tuckered out from planting all them beans. Such a cutie!

  23. How did I get to be as old as I am, and not know that beans have eyes. This is why I have the internet.

  24. Cap'n:

    Liam's adorable. I like Bella Sinclair's comment, "Cool beans!"

    Brian is correct. The poem " frickin'rocks".

  25. I love how it's partially a cautionary tale. I'm casting my vote for a weekly feature from Liam.
