Abu Dhabi Weather

Thursday, May 27, 2010


Today was the release of a collection of poetry by the staff and students. These poems are the printed result of the Poetry Slam that was held at the college. While I didn't attend the actual performance, I heard that the attendance was up from last year. Hearing that there was chocolate cake at the unveiling of the publication, I made sure to go to that.

It's nice to know that there are some students who take an active interest in the activities of the school. I'm not a big fan of poetry and less of a critic, but the students who got involved put some real effort into it. Still, I like my poem:

There once was a Sheik from Dubai
Who built a building so high.
"Our city's the best,
Though I must confess
The money to pay has gone dry."


  1. There once was a dude from Milwaukee
    Who liked to talk the big talk, he
    Once lived in Japan
    But then wanted a tan
    So his family moved to Abu Dhabi.

  2. Abu Dhabi doesn't fit the intonation pattern of a limerick which is why I didn't use it. Other than that, it's pretty good.
