|“||That was my first poem ever. Okay, so it's not Shakespeare, but I liked it.||”|
–Max, The Final Warning
In The Final Warning, Max wrote a poem about the color white while she and the Flock were in Antarctica. The poem was entitled "A Poem By Max" and was the first poem she'd ever written.
"White is the color of little bunnies with pink noses.
White is the color of fluffy clouds fluffing their way across the sky.
White is the color of soft-serve ice cream in a cone.
White is the color of angels' wings and Angel's wings.
White is the color of brand-new ankle socks fresh out of the bag.
White is the color of crisp sheets in schmancy hotels.
White is the color of every last freaking, gol-danged thing you see for endless miles and miles if you happen to be in Antarctica trying to save the world, which now you aren't so sure you can do because you feel like if you see any more whiteness---Wonder Bread, someone's underwear, teeth---you will completely and totally lose your ever-lovin' mind and wind up pushing a grocery cart full of empty cans around New York City, muttering to yourself."
