Poems for Children Only

Poems for Children Only If poem seems bad straighten it out for me So maybe soon eventually I can start to see What I thought were to be my eccentricities Compared to yours were all inadequacies. Many of my verbs may be in wrong tense Word arrangement never made much sense Some adverbs should be adjectives instead And ending of my people often did dread. Okay, my comrade poets I must confess What should I do to straighten out this mess? Start trying to tear all of my poems apart; Write poems for children only soon do start. James Thomas Horn, Retired Veteran
