this is what i could've written if my english teacher'd given me a chance, but instead i got a framework and little blanks to fill in. agh.
all of the poets that could have been
you handed out a sheet,
little lines to print neat words on,
sentence still in,
as though we were to treat this
"poem" like it's a Mad Lib.
so here, i'll write what i am,
because apparently i'm not allowed to do that -
so here's what i could have written,
if you'd only given me the chance.
