How To Write Poetry
POOF! POW! BAM!
You’re trying to write poetry but it isn’t good enough,
but that doesn’t mean to just give up.
You’re brain isn’t cut out for this,
so I will give you some really great tips.
Stare at your yellow pencil,
and throw it in the air.
It hits the blank wall, and onto the floor.
Forget about the pencil marks and do it once more.
You’re getting the idea.
Now, sit at your desk with the yellow pencil at hand.
Stare at the endless blue lines, and write about a flying pencil.
You stop writing.
The brain has stopped.
The gear in your brain comes to a halt.
You can’t find a word that rhymes with orange,
So you decide to use the phrase, door hinge.
Don’t forget to add the section about a stuffed bear!
You’re finally done.
The lead is all done, but at least you had fun!
If you follow these directions,
The poem should be about a flying pencil.
But if not,
You’re story is probably about a lying utencil.
Remember, if you ever have trouble writing superior poetry,
Just read this section, and it will be about a flying pencil.
