A Poem. (Joe Milford Has Nothing to Worry About)
I always tell my students I hate poetry but secretly I am jealous.
Some of it is very cool and mesmerizes me
By being able to tell a story in a few words about
Hot water corn bread or making grits with your grandpa
I only did bad haikus because they were assigned in class
I am older now and I appreciate things more.
Like NPR and watching the news
SO now I want to write poetry
I want to express feelings
And do it In fewer words
Plus I like to talk about myself.
