Check Your Spelling - Poem by Juan Olivarez
Anyone can write a poem.
Anyone can inspire.
But when you can't spell,
Buy a dictionary.
Many poets use long complex words,
To Impress those they write for.
This is fine, if the word is used correctly,
In a sentence.
Sometimes the most brilliant poets,
Or should I say would be poets,
Can't put a sentence together to,
Save their lives.
All you are doing, is dumbing down,
The use of, shall we say, exotic words,
But correct sentence structure,
A little word called Syntex.
Remember nouns, denote, a person, place, or thing.
Verbs denote action.
And adjectives, modify nouns.
If you have not captured this basic lesson,
You have no business,
