Good morning, friends! I wrote this free-verse poem for my creative writing course. I hope you enjoy it and it brings a smile to your face!
My dad thinks poetry is stupid.
He says poets simply decide to hit enter
without any good reason.
Why can’t this all be
What makes this one
so special it deserves a line of its own?
My dad likes things like right angles
And strategy games
And big books of theology
And cinnamon cookies
And Ohio State football
He designs pumps and understands math,
but when he reads poems,
He wonders if they would make more sense
