This Is How To Write A Poem - Poem by Marvel C. Pephel

This is how to write a poem: Envisage you are a parachute With a missing ripcord, And do not know where you might land. This is how to write a poem: Assume you are a virgin princess Looking for your knight in shinning armour, But still playing with the street lads. This is how to write a poem: Believe you are an alien Who dropped down to earth for leisure, And not careful in his treads. Better still, This is how to write a poem: Assume you are a little goblin Playing with the sun, the moon and the stars, And not afraid of bestowing darkness or light Upon the face of the universe.
