    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...
