Because it's National Poetry Day


Line, line, line!
Make a line!
Shoes, I need shoes:
Nine, nine,
Size nine!

We’re out of shoes.
You said shoes…
I’m sorry,
No more shoes.

We all dive in,
Rip the bag,
Grab the clothes…
Coat, coat—
Don’t need a coat.

Shoes, you said shoes!
Tomorrow,
Maybe shoes.

Train, train, train!
Quick, jump the train!
Police, dodge police,
Jump the train!

Line! Line!
Watch the line—
Electric line!

We all dive in,
Dodge police,
Jump the train…
Pain, pain,
Searing pain!

Fire! Fire!
He’s on fire!
On my back,
On the track:
Line, line, line…
