A Jack Northrop Poem
Just wait one more second
and you will read this
confusing little poem that might
keep you thinking hard. It's
not like your usual poem. It's
only for the bravest and truest explorers.
Read and reread this confusing little poem.
Then read it one more time. We all
have our tricks and our intelligence.
Right now you may feel lost. This is
Perhaps you have found your way to the end.
An Extra-Special Jack Northrop Poem
Jingle Bells is a famous song. OJ,
a fine breakfast drink. California,
Colorado, Iowa are states. Magic
keeps you guessing. In the back
near their desks are some children.
One or two of you may like to go
run really fast and race really far.
Twelve or thirteen may like to eat
hamburgers or hot dogs or a dish
really full of pizza. Who'd rather
order a taco? Now I want you to
pick up your two hands and clap.
If you're reading these two poems, you saw Ken Waldman
at your school in late February 2019 thanks to the
amazing people at LPAC in downtown Lancaster.
