I attended a workshop recently and have decided to try my hand at poetry. I am the perfect lizard for this kind of thing. After the successful human poet inspired the attendees with his experience and wisdom, he assigned us the exercise of writing a poem we had always wanted to write. I knew instantly what I wanted to write about. I hope you enjoy it.
I’ve Always Wanted to Write a Poem About by Curtis Curly-tail
I’ve always wanted to write a poem about iguanas.
Those scaly creatures so like cats.
Their eyes shine with intelligence,
Calling you to do their bidding,
Knowing you will obey.
Their claws scratch,
Their tails whip,
And their teeth pierce.
Still you give them your warmth.
But write them a poem? No!
After all, nothing rhymes with iguana!
