April 23: The Reluctant Reader
Take a step back and exhale.
We’re talking about words in lines
that possibly rhyme
and might have a tappy rhythm too:
da-dum da-dum da-do
But don’t let that scare you.
It’s just a song waiting for a tune;
a text suitable for diving in or wading through.
Deeper meaning to invoke or repel at will,
no right or wrong quota to fulfill.
