"Good things come to those who wait."


You want me to do what?
Please tell me you’re kidding.
My brain’s like a doorknob,
I can’t think of anything.
My pencil just broke,
This song is distracting,
I’m falling asleep in my chair.
Did someone call my name?
Poetry isn’t my thing.
I forgot to eat breakfast,
And brush my teeth good.
They should be done now,
I know they should.
Time's up? Uh oh!
All I have is this dumb list of excuses.
You like it? Really? No kidding.
Thanks a lot.
You want another,
What?

I made this poem for school. I thought I would share it with teenink to see what you guys think.

Funny. I've never thought about writing a poem about not being able to write a poem.
