The Poem of Poems

I was going to write a really cool poem, one with words that rhyme
But it turns out that I couldn’t think or didn’t have the time
You know I can’t remember, my mind is at a block
I guess I’ll just reach through the back, and look in the spare stock
Maybe a poem about a green avocado
Maybe a poem about old El Dorado
A poem that makes me feel like flying
A poem that makes me feel like crying
Maybe a poem about the tall Sears Tower
Maybe a poem about the smallest flower
Maybe I’ll write a poem about kelp
My gosh! I can’t think! I really need help
I might write a poem about writing and typing
Or maybe a poem about yelling and griping
A poem about refrigerators
A poem about heat generators
Maybe a poem about a computer screen
Maybe a poem about pork and beans
Or maybe a poem about battles we’ve fought
Or maybe, I don’t know. You got any thoughts?
