My poetry collection

This is a poetry anthology that was begun in my year 9 English class


10. How to read a poem

 I take a poem and then

I think,I want to know its meaning

But it not budge

Then in an instant

I lose my temper.

I grab it by its soft neck and throw it 

As it was a handball,

The thud of an earthquake hits

Then as fast as a circuit

It's gone.

Footsteps like gunshots

Pants like horrific screams,

It has been caught

Left hook,right hook.

Rage,sweat and tears 

Then,something comes out

A sharp bladed knife with its target locked on

I now know

I leave it to rot in the rain

As the blood oozes from its face and chest

My work here is done
