Example Poem

Camping Trip
“Dress for camping,” I advised, “Wear red.
So she put on a pencil dress.
She wanted me home instead.
Her ploy was a success.

I stayed home and was not sad.
I was I’ll admit, quite content.
Next time I said “Camping won’t be bad.”

“Dress in red.  Wear boots- You will be glad.”
She dressed in leather; time well spent
and wore the best boots she had.

Even though she brought rope,
Figuring to snare our lunch?
I stayed home again.  I’m no dope.
And there I enjoyed my honeybunch.
