How To Write A Poem - Poem by Troy Dunn

Start with some letters
Then make ‘um into words.
Put a few together,
Maybe divide it into thirds.

You can use long-winded terms,
But you'll need a good thesaurus.
With it, you can write a little mystery,
About a purple brontosaurus.

Or tell a loved one how much you love
To have them as a friend.
Then before you even know it
Your poem will have an end.
