Random Poem:

the written verse

Take great heed
in what you read
the words I write
may plant a seed
then in your head
the words shall dance
and come to mind
at every chance
mixed with yours
they will conceive
ideas that weren't
meant to be
with new pride
you will vent
infecting minds
of the innocent
"for upon the paper
the words are written
and when they are spoken
the children will listen."
                  Gregory Reddick
