    I Hope Nav Will Help!

    School Poem; Imitation Poem: The Poison Tree, I Pity Thee

    Yeah this is just a poem I had to write for school. We had to imitate a poem of a certain writer and I chose the poem "The Poison Tree" written by William Blake. I had pity with people: my pity, it did eventually end, I was angry with society: I kept it in, and grow it did so...

    It's time for this leaf to fall. This ship to sail. Cya later, alligators. Try not to get too lost. Or if you do, continue getting lost until you find your way back home.
