I Can't Write a Poem
Katherine, Age 12, British Columbia, Canada

Write a poem?
How on Earth do I do that?
My brain is fogging up
My stomach is churning
Everyone is writing except me
What do I do now?
I need to lie down
I need some more paper
I'm sweating.
I need and idea, anything
I'd rather be at home sick,
sipping chicken soup
I'd rather be doing a math exam
Just not writing a poem!
Time's up? Uh Oh!
All I have is this dumb list of excuses
You like it? Really? No kidding!
I guess I'm a poet
and I didn't even know it!
