I Made a Meme this Morning by Kenn Nesbitt

I made a memememe a cultural item in the form of an image, video, phrase, etc., that is spread via the internet and often altered in a creative or humorous way. this morning.
I posted it online.
(I asked my mom’s permission.
She said that it was fine.)

Then people started sharing it.
The next thing that I knew,
my meme had spread around the world.
It grew, and grew, and grew!

By lunch my meme went viralviral becoming very popular by circulating quickly from person to person, especially through the internet..
It had a billion views.
By dinnertime the TV had it
on the evening news.

I earned a penny, maybe two,
from every single share,
and, by the time I went to bed,
I was a millionaire.

I thought of making one more meme
that might go even higher.
But, nah, I’m nearly nine years old.
I think I’ll just retire.
