The poem is below.

Conversation starters

“What’s the funniest movie you’ve seen?”
Or: “What fun stuff do you get up to?”
Maybe: “How do you get rid of stress?”
Or: “What’s a scary thing you do?”

These are some random conversation starters,
Folks use when they’re out down the street.
Spoken to kick start a conversation,
With people they want to meet.

There’s also book starters, like:
“What’s the last book that you read?”
And then food starters, like:
“What’s your weirdest thing eaten on bread?”

But, importantly, remember the starters to avoid,
Like: “What things do you do with leather?”
Or the biggest killer of all conversations with:
“Let’s have a deep talk about weather.”
