[ On Poetry ] The L Word

You like'n that to this  

You like'n this to that  
 
It's like ... like like like Like LIkE  
 
Am I right?  
 
I'm waiting for the moment  
you like'n yourself to  
a person who likes to  
write Write WRITE poetry  
 
Just like riding a bike  
you never forget ...  
 
... unless you were never  
taught bike riding to begin with  
 
Let me show you how ... now  
to create the metaphor  
you've never met  
before  
 
And if your poetry teachers  
never introduced you to the concept  
were they really worth a damn?  
 
Isn't that the epitome of inept?  
 
Or perhaps they lectured you  
while you slept in the classroom?  
 
It was one or the other  
I can only assume  
 
It couldn't possibly be both ...  
 
because that would mean  
they were one in the same!  
 
There you go!  
 
You snoozingly drooling  
through Poetry 101  
was the poor substitute teacher  
resulting in your lack of schooling  
 
See, no "like" was necessary  
in the equation  
 
Please LIKE this poem  
when you are done  
and have a great weekend  
 
Class dismissed
