Poem in Your Pocket Day



According to Poets.org it was April 14 but in true Kentucky-lagging-behind-everyone-else fashion, we at the LPL are celebrating it today. LOL

My choice of poem is Dorothy Parker's Resumé:

Razors pain you;
Rivers are damp;
Acids stain you;
And drugs cause cramp.
Guns aren't lawful;
Nooses give;
Gas smells awful;
You might as well live.

What poem(s) would you keep in your wallet?

I think that I shall never see
A poem as lovely as a tree.

by the Earth poet, Joyce Kilmer.

Hmmm...that sounds familiar. Is it similar to the beginning of another poem, RLH?
