Kidnap Poem

Rating: 4.5


Ever been kidnapped
by a poet
if i were a poet
i'd kidnap you
put you in my phrases and meter
You to jones beach
or maybe coney island
or maybe just to my house
lyric you in lilacs
dash you in the rain
blend into the beach
to complement my see
Play the lyre for you
ode you with my love song
anything to win you
wrap you in the red Black green
show you off to mama
yeah if i were a poet i'd kid
nap you

A really cute piece, a love story to the reader. Truley beautiful. It is creative how no punctuation or capitalization was used, Except in the word Black, when describing the flag colors. I don't know why he does this though.
