I can’t write a poem.
I’ve never even tried, and when I was thinking,
I’m pretty sure I almost died.
The way it almost happened was because I was woozy,
I’m really really tired and droopy.
I never felt like this, it’s super weird, and for some reason
there is this pirate with a really long beard.
He keeps saying, “Hardy, har, har!”
So I tried to chase him away with a roar, roar, ROAR!
This poem is getting on my last nerve.
I can’t even write because there are no lines so my words go curve.
I really can’t do this, it’s too hard, and my arm
got cut by a glass shard.
My arm is starting to bleed, it’s getting all over my paper!
Grrr! It hurts so bad!
My teacher gave me a band-aid, then all of a sudden,
when I closed my eyes with stress, I saw a mermaid.
Writing a poem is really difficult,
but I had imagination & an idea in a jolt!
Now I get it, I know how to do it;
all the things I talked about showed me how to write a poem
and I learned to poet.
Those are the reasons, until now, I couldn’t learn to poet.
