Poem: pop culture


You have to see it!
You have to hear it!
Everyone one is talking about it!


What did you see?
That thing people heard?
You know, the one they talked about?

The day after tomorrow:

You saw what?!
People heard what?!
Wait, everyone talked about what?!


Poetry topic idea: importance

Today’s poetry topic idea is importance.  A poet could write about:

  • The disconnect between what a person says is important to them and what their actions show to be important to them.

  • The idea of how importance is determined and how importance is ranked.

  • The perception of importance.

  • The disconnect between what is seen as having importance and what actually has importance.
