~ Dr. Seuss


Today you assigned us to write a poem,
my paper and I thought it would be easy,
But really,
It was harder than a stale piece of bread.

You said it had to have a simile,
You know something that compares two objects using like or as,
Well this is as tough as a brand new softball glove

You reminded us that it had to use personification,
you remember, you animate an inanimate object,
We’ll my paper is scolding me now for not being able to write a poem.

You told us that it had to have a metaphor,
you taught us that it is just like a simile but without the like or as,
But I think this is flowing slower than molasses would.

You said it had to be a narrative,
Just like a story but shorter and in stanzas,
But I couldn’t do it.

Looking back now I can tell,
WAIT!
STOP!
LOOK!
I wrote one!

Now I think I’ll read it to you.

This is actually telling the truth! I couldn't think of how to write this poem and then I thought, what if I actually wrote about what had to bee in it! And WAH LA!!!

This is actually a very unique piece. I like how it's almost a contradiction of itself, and love the cleverness of the premisce. But like your other one, I do feel as though this could REALLY be flushed out. It was good, it just needs more added on to it.
