Roses are red, Violets are blue, sugas is sweet and so are you. But the roses are wilting, the violets are dead, the sugar bowls empty, and so is your head!
That is a funny poem.

A measuring stick for the depth of one’s heart.
A poem: "Handshake"

"He comes to shake my hand; locking my palm in a grip of iron. One can only wonder why he chooses to hold me so firmly; in what is such a powerful vice of muscle and flesh? Is it my hand he intends to crush with this brutal grasp? Or is it the aspirations he believes I still hold for his woman? Could it be more? Could he actually be so foolish as to think it even possible to crush my very love for her with only but his fingers? HA!! Such is the reasoning of this simple fool. Let me assure you my friend, both hands and more will break before that day!"

Somewthing that someone write probably without using words like iambic pentamenter or enjanbment. They just wrote it, and if it wasnt right, they changed it till it was. Then someone other fucker came along and tortured hundreds of kids with endlessly boring drivel, when if the kids had just read the fucker, they might have enjoyed it, instead of in later life, burning all the books and rioting in the streets.
Here is your exam question: Based on the poem Daffodils by William Wordsworth, do you think he'd scored some good opium that morning. Discuss referring constantly to other examples, using words that are long and meaningless and won't help you in the real world.

A short thing that rhymes and is either corny,sweet,or bithcy
Roses are red Violets are blue
I was in love, but not with you
You thought you hurt me, made me cry
But I was in love with another guy
You told me you loved me, but that wasn't true
But guess what PIMP, I played you too! =)

This is a good poem!

A great way for angst-ridden teens to vent their emotions using eloquent language and heart-wrenching content.
Poems don't usually include sarcasm, do they?

A group of words phrazed together to create a peice of writing. Generally, it is short, but a poem can be anything that shows something--a feeling...a sound...a color...a thought... Most of them rhyme, but some don't. People sometimes have poetry slams, in which people read these poems aloud.
LOVE POEM:

Love
The saddest thing I see—
People who walk, not knowing where they are
Wanderers, dropped on this earth by mistake
Empty eyes, like pebbles, dropped in a lake.
They see only images
A dim outline in the fog of appearance.
Like words that you’ve said so many times they have no meaning
These people are just clones
With shadows of who they could have been.
Of whom they are not.

Is there a cure for those who do not care?
Is there a way to save all of the lonely people of this world who don’t know who they are?
Is there a way to help the people who don’t know they need it?
Yes.
The cure?
The cure is love.
