Cumulative poems are those in which we add a line to a stanza to make a new stanza. My favourite is "There was an old woman who swallowed a fly (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/There_Was_an_Old_Lady_Who_Swallowed_a_Fly)".:lol:

You can add a max of two lines to the previous posted stanza.

The stanza should be of the form (From the perspective of a child):

I was alone at home, all day, all night,
....
Oh dear God, what have I done?

I'll start:

I was alone at home, all day, all night,
...
And the walls were now yellow, green and chrome,
Oh dear God, what have I done?

Once it gets too long, we can start on a new poem.

I do nothing except homework, September until June
The plumbing here hasn't worked since Cernan walked on the moon.
(Is that okay?)

You should add those lines into the earlier stanza to make a new stanza. And please assure continuity. :)

i was alone at home, all day all night,
and the walls were now yellow, green and chrome,
oh dear god , what have i done,

i do nothing except homework, september until june.
the plumbing here hasnt worked since cernan walked on the moon,
oh dear god , what have i done?

i write these lines on a morning or afternoon,
i look around my house, it needs sweeping with a broom.
oh dear god ,what have i done?
