The Point of Poems

What’s the point of poems?
I mean, whose got the time
To think of all these random words
and somehow make them ryhme?

To write them down on paper,
And maybe have them read:
I can think of things much better,
Among them, being dead.

To sit all day and write away
Would just be such a bore!
I mean, just thinking about poems
Makes me want to snore!

I’ll never write a poem;
I’ll never even try!
Wait a minute, hold the phone,
I just did, didn’t I?
