Back to School and Wingnuts--Monorhyme Poem

This is my first spring choir concert and also Monorhyme day! Woo hoo!

This is Hunter's last whole day
At our house ere he goes away
Back to college, his books to survey.
Scholarships will help him pay.
The park was very nice for play,
As were the card games yesterday.
I've loved his visit, gotta say.
Now let him go and make more A's!
For a safe flight I do pray
And let his dorm life lack a-frey
I hope his food tastes unlike hay
Hope he returns soon as he may
For he is sunshine's happy ray
We're glad he came hip hip hooray. 

Don't know why wingnuts are cool
Perhaps appearances can fool
You can trap an unsuspecting ghoul
With a wingnut and a large-sized spool
(Be prepared for a pint of drool!)
You will not even need a tool
You can turn one into a blingy jewel
With some flashy string made out of wool
Or clamp the cover on your pool
Keep a wingnut handy as a rule
You'll not regret it, 'cause it's cool

So in case you'd like to write your own monorhyme, here's a really good site for getting directions.
