Nightmare date

by Susanjohn

Cacophony Poem Contest Winner 
Across the table I stare at you
I just can't believe the things you do!
Spaghetti splattered across your plate
Slurping and belching on our first date!

Munch crunch pop! Did you just lose a tooth?
NOT puckering in that kissing booth!
For goodness sake! Who the heck raised you?
Gagging and gulping the food you chew.

Oh Dear Lord! Here comes the apple pie
You're heaving! I think I'm going to die!
Vroom, zoom, kaboom, dash to the door
No way on earth... YOU'RE going to score!

Writing Prompt
Write a Cacophony poem of between four and 12 lines. This type of poetry uses harsh, discordant, and jarring words, to make the reader imagine noise. Any subject, but keep it clean.
