In Summer 2009, I gave a HW assignment of writing a poem to my mostly right-brained students. The results were great; I think they think they are poets and they know it. The poems were all compiled and can be viewed at http://numericalmethods.eng.usf.edu/EML3041/homework/poems2009summer.html.
So happy reading and let me know what you think. I selected 14 poems out of the 60 or so submitted and am polling the class to select the best three. The top three poem writers will get prizes including a dollar to get the 89c Chicken Burritto at Taco Bell for “thinking outside the bun” or the biggie fries at Wendy’s for thinking “square rather than round”.
