I Don't Like Poetry
By Rafaye Sheikh
Genre: Poetry Level: Elementary 4-6
Year: 2006 Category: Margaret Mielke Memorial Poetry Award

I don't like poetry,
I don't write it, either.
I think Mr. Robert Frost had
Too much extra time.
I've read one
Of his poems
I could
have died
of boredom.
My teacher tells me
His poems are supposed
to make you think
I cannot even think
When I read one.
By the way,
This is NOT a Poem.
I don't like poetry,
You can't make me write it!
