A Shirt

       did you know                did you know
   what i am? well             i'm a shirt, a shirt
  no? can't you tell? do you see what i am yet?
  or shall i tell you more what i can do, what i am
 I am the thing you put on each morning for work
or for play, or for school, and every time you go out 
          but you take me  for  granted,  friend 
           not everyone  has such an advantage
            some don't have more than  a cloth
            to cover a small portion of their skin
           sin marred by the hot sun and by dirt
            the next time you put me on to play
           remember what i have told you today
           you may always have me you may not
            but you can't take things for granted
           because you have minor problems now
            compared to those in other countries
           please stop complaining about them all

    well done, I might change the Poem name to -What am I. you ask a question but you already rovided the answer. Tha shape and content I felt were excellent. I am unfamiliar with this style so if what I am saying does not make sense totaly ignore it. either way I like your poem.

    You are really good at this kind of poetry, Juli. I have seen other examples of shape poetry and that's exactly how people should do it, just start talking as if you are that "thing" that you are shaping up to be. Very nice! Are you Mormon too?
