Who wants to read poetry,
That dry, boring stuff...
With words that are flowery,
And all full of fluff?
 
So you'd rather be fishing,
Or out digging in the dirt...
Working on a suntan gone wrong,
That you know is gonna hurt.
 
But you might discover,
To your utter surprise...
That a poem paints a picture,
Full of words sometimes wise.
 
There are poems that are funny,
A few wring out the tears...
Some are easily forgotten,
While others stick for years.
 
Don't knock it till you've tried it,
Grit your teeth, dig right in...
Poetry can take you far away,
Then bring you back again.
 
Poems don't have to be boring,
But may be instead...
Words that impress you,
Then roll 'round' your head!
