Today I wrote this poem

Today I wrote this poem,
but I’m not sure if it’s good.
It doesn’t have the things
my teacher says a poem should.

It doesn’t share the feelings
I have deep inside of me.
It hasn’t any metaphors
and not one simile.

It’s missing any narrative.
Alliteration too.
It isn’t an acrostic,
diamante, or haiku.

There’s nothing that’s personified.
It doesn’t have a plot.
I’m pretty sure that rhyming
is the only thing it’s got.

It sure was fun to write it,
and I think it’s long enough.
It’s just too bad it’s missing
all that great poetic stuff.

I put it on my teacher’s desk
and, wow, she made a fuss.
She handed back my poem
with an A++++!
