ROAR

There was an old man who heard a roar.
There was an old man who followed the roar.
There was an old man who caught the roar.
There was an old man who ate the roar.
There was an old man who became the roar
and never got seen again.

Why do you like to write poetry?

Rylee McBride: “I like writing poetry because it helps get my imagination into words.”
