Middle School, First Place: Boredom
If Boredom were a color,
it would be white, as white as a blank canvas.
If Boredom were a taste,
it would be just like stale Saltine crackers
If Boredom were a smell,
it would be as boring as boiling water.
If Boredom were tangible,
it would feel like dull metal.
If Boredom were a sound,
it would be as piercing as white noise.
If Boredom were called any other name,
it would be Quarantine.
