                                                    How to Write a Poem

     

    Begin with this:

    Forget it, you must be kidding,

    I can’t write a poem.

    Then list excuses why you can’t write a poem here.  List at least seven excuses to make the poem.

     

      I think my hand is numb

      My foot is throbbing with pain

    If I don’t get a drink I think I will die

    Then end with something like this-

    Times up? Oh, no!

    Wait, do you like it? Really?

    Would you like to hear another?
