Exercise #20 (page 305)
This exercise was to write two pattern poems, one in the shape of a cross and another in the shape of a capital I. Also, an acrostic verse spelling out your name.
deep symbolic meaning
is the plain wooden
Really, Fry? It seems ridiculous
Of you to make me go to such a fuss.
Surely penning poems about my name
As such is just a narcissistic game,
Leaving others to suspect I find
In it more fun than yet has come to mind.
Not wishing folks to think me vain and dumb,
Denouncing it, I find the end has come.
Mirror, mirror on the wall
make me gracious dark and tall
make me charming rich and wise
And both my biceps a larger size.
