At The Annual Poetry Show (your attendance is requested).


No, please don’t go;

I know it’s a poetry show

but, we’ll give you everlasting thanks

if you could stay and fill the ranks.

We’ll keep it light,

we’ll keep it fun,

we’ll keep the pace going at a run-

it’ll soon be over.

please don’t worry,

sit back down, relax,

there is no hurry;

close your eyes

and open your minds,

draw back the curtains,

raise up the blinds,

and see what’s outside in the poetry garden,

I’m sure it will please,

if not,

we beg pardon;

for the fault is all ours

for making it so;

but, if you thought this was pottery,

you have our leave to go.”
