1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Poems are wicked
They rap out a rhyme
They speak with an accent
Like yours and like mine
They don’t bother with numbers
But they really do count
Poems are livin’
So stand up and ShOuT!

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 So dream about rhythms
Wrap up in their wOrDs
Some will be noisy
Others not heard
Words are a picture
A painting a song
Words are forever
With us they belong!

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Write about fOoTbAlL
Sound off on your team
Losing or winning
Whatever you feel
Rhyming or free verse
Haiku is cOoL
Original thinking
Is all down to you!

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 So tell us a sToRy
Go give us the deal
History and future
Keeping it real
Language is freedom
And freedom is choice
So pick up a pen
And make it your VoIcE!
