Recently in English Humanities class, we have been looking at the different types and structures of poetry. There is one poem I have written that I'd like to share The title is: "What a Poem is Not".
What a Poem is Not

A poem is not addictive, but it can hook you in.
A poem is not a bully, but it can be mean.
A poem is not a cat, but it can be sneaky.
A poem is not a dictionary, but it can be full of words.
A poem is not an elephant, but it can be heavy.
A poem is not a fan, but it can blow you away.
A poem is not a ghost, but it can be scary.
A poem is not history, but it can be old.
A poem is not an ice-cream, but it can be cold.
A poem is not jelly, but it can be wobbly.
A poem is not a kettle, but it can boil.
A poem is not a light, but it can be bright.
A poem is not a memory, but it can stay with you.
A poem is not a nail, but it can be sharp.
A poem is not an orange, but it can be well-rounded.
A poem is not a pillow, but it can be soft.
A poem is not a queen, but it can be royal.
A poem is not a rainbow, but it can be full of colour.
A poem is not a song, but it can have a melody.
A poem is not a tongue-twister, but it can be confusing.
A poem is not unusual, but it can be strange.
A poem is not a volcano, but it can erupt with words.
A poem is not weird, but it can be random.
A poem is not a x-ray, but it can see through things.
A poem is not a yo-yo, but it can go up and down.
A poem is not a zebra, but it can be black and white.
As you may have noticed, we had to put it in alphabetical order. We also had to use the structure of; A poem is not ..., but it can be ... . I hope you enjoyed reading it!
