Today's poem: Who needs Poetry?
Kids who like rhythm Kids who are laid back
Kids who like rhyme Kids on the fast-track
Kids who won't sit still Kids who are motor-mouths
Kids who take their time Kids who keep journals
Kids who want to chill Kids who like to sing
Kids who love to write Kids who curl up with a book
Kids who feel the beat Kids who like motion
Each and every night Kids with dancing feet
Kids who watch too much TV Kids who like word-play
And think that school is a bore Kids who like to rap
Kids who hate tests Kids who crave a little treat
And find homework a chore To savor in a snap!
