When I needn’t bother to write a phrase,
I can think of a rhyme in a dozen ways.
But when I have to, I sometimes find
I have to think, to use my mind.
I find it like biology class,
For there we get confused so fast.
We have a time telling xylem from phloem--
But I’ll be darned! I’ve written a poem!
This one I wrote in high school and it was published in a student project booklet.
