Numbers - Poem by D.A. Woods

one, two, three and four,
five's got six, but seven wants more.
Eight, nine and ten,
want eleven to start all over again.
But twelve wishes it was thirteen and fourteens green,
fifteen growls at sixteen because seventeens mean.
eighteen loves nineteen but it's had enough,
twenty has had plenty of twenty ones' love.

    Entertaining poem. I like the way the numbers are personified and the wordplay used. This is an interesting concept that I think should be further explored. Nice Work =) . (Report) Reply
