How Do I Write Poetry?


My teacher said to write
A poem about some stuff
I really don't like
I have had just about enough

The words are all arranged
In a funny sort of way
That you can not understand
Even if you try all night and day

There's poems about cars
There's poems about trees
I think that I would go crazy
If I tried to write like these

So I am just going to tell my teacher
That I'm not going to fuss and fight
That even though I did my best
I keep asking myself, "Did I get this right?
