(REPOSTED) If An Onion Was A Person... (Poem by Mark Swift)


Author's Note: I told many of you I'd write one. Here it is!
.
If an onion was a person,
would I cry any less?
If an onion was a person,
would its layers be few?
If an onion was a person,
would it finally be spared?
If an onion was a person,
I would cry with it every day.
If an onion was a person,
No knife would harm it.
If an onion was a person,

  2. First off, the picture is A-mazing. Second of all, the poem is A-mazing. The onion references makes it humorous but there's a truer and deeper meaning behind that, you were right, I do like the next poems you posted. :D

    1. Picture is off the internet. Poem, however, was me :D
      This one is actually one I didn't write yesterday, though. I started it about a week ago, rewrote it today

  6. Moral of the story: cannibalism is fine as long as you cut them up small enough

    Hmm....

    Moral of the story: In the end, the outer layer or what we all see is discarded, revealing the inside, which is all that matters

    No, that's too deep

    Moral of the story: Submerge people in water long enough and you'll get a new one with flowers

    Moral of the story: All of your friends are onions. THEY STINK (ba-da-boom tss)

    1. Your logic: "All of Mark Borne's friends are stupid."
      Fact: Kyra is one of Mark Borne's friends.
      Logically: Kyra is stupid!
      Congrats, you've just insulted yourself :D

      In truth, your second one was the closest. I definitely don't mean what's seen is discarded, though; the outer layers are still layers to what (or who) that onion (or person) is

    2. No, they just stink. ;)

      DANG IT! STUPID ACCURATE SARACASM! XD

Jedi: Fallen Order (Lightsaber Customization)

Okay, I must say, lightsaber customization in Jedi: Fallen Order should be its own $15 video game. The experience of customizing your lightsaber? It's truly remarkable and my favorite part of the game so far. Want to know what's odd? It's inspired by Galaxy's Edge lightsaber building. There are 5 parts to your lightsaber in Jedi: Fallen Order. They are as follows: Blade Color This is pretty self-explanatory. This is the color of your lightsaber. For preordering the game, you unlock the orange lightsaber blade, which is what I currently have active (as of writing this article). The default lightsaber color is blue. You also start, however, with a green color as well. Emitter This is the "top" part of your lightsaber. I personally dislike the default piece, so I changed it. As of writing this article, I think I have the Umbaran Campaign (another preorder bonus) emitter equipped, but I could be wrong. Switch The switch is the "middle" pa

Gabby's Q/A Answers

LUCY 1. What’s your favorite poem? Oh goodness, I could never choose one, but the first one that came to mind that I love is Robert Frost’s “October,” it’s so elegantly written and just so beautiful. 2. What’s your go-to poem or song for writing inspiration? It depends, but "Heartbreak Weather" By Jonah Marais is a song I've been writing a lot to lately. It's sad enough for dark poetry but beautiful enough for nature descriptions and other odd combinations. I’ve also been listening to “Breakaway” by Kelly Clarkson (The Daniel Seavey cover though) and “Lose You To Love Me” by Selena Gomez. 3. Do you play any instruments? So, I had a guitar for about 3 years now and I know a part of a Nirvana song and some other rock songs my mom taught me. I've also dabbled on keyboard and know 2 little beats my grandpa taught me and part of a NF song my sister showed me. I don't play professionally or anything, my guitar broke and my sis won't let me play her keyboard,

Q/A Answers

SHALY:  Q. How many times do you estimate you fart a day? (I want to see how you answer this one.) 6/10 A. Well, I'd estimate about zero times a day. Q. Who do you like better C.S. Lewis or J.R. Tolkien and why? 7/10 A. I'm going to have to go with J.R.R.Tolkien as my pick. C.S.Lewis is cool, and I like the Narnia movies more than the Hobbit or LotR movies, but the Hobbit book was REALLY good. Because of that, I have to go with Tolkien. Q. Is your character, Irene, inspired by Gabby? (Also, I like the name, Irene.) 4/10 A. Actually, no! Irene is based off my imaginary friend. (No, Kyra, not George McMuffle. He's not my imagination friend, he's in Independent Imaginary.) (And yes, Shaly, I like Irene's name, too!) Q. Would you go to Asia or Europe and why? Which region, area, city, etc. would you visit from the specific continent? 8/10 A. Europe for sure. Specifically, England. I don't know where in England I'd go, but I've always been fascinated
