We don't read and write poetry because it's cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for.

He asked for a poem,

and when it comes to poetry I always comply.

I will write a great one fo’ em,

containing a pun, though I’m not sure why.


A poem containing a pun?

That is crazy and strange.

This poem started out fun,

but now is becoming hard to contain.


This poem, though great,

is spinning wildly out of control.

I could change it if it weren’t too late,

but hey it’s straight from the soul.


I have one more line to come up with a great pun,

but sadly I believe this poem will have none.
