Question: Do you sometimes finish the whole poem in your head before writing it down!?
by TD Euwaite

Hi America!
My name is Sasha,
Sasha Obama!.
My daddy is President
of the U!.S!.A!.,
and I can get a dog now!.
The ‘conomy will get fixed,
because my daddy went to Harvard!.
Those terrorers won’t
crash no more planes into us,
and there won’t be any starving children
on the TV anymore, only Hannah Montana!.

Great poem, but you forgot Malia!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

Poets have discussed use of irony at length these past few months!. Your poems often illustrate the "show, don't tell" principle!. As for the message, Americans are eternal optimists!. A little hope doesn't hurt; it will be dashed soon enough!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

I remember when I was much younger a song, also gentle satire, "My
Daddy's the President" when Caroline Kennedy was a first kid!.
And I'm hot crazy about Hannah Montana, either!Www@QuestionHome@Com

Everything is swell, isn't it!? Or, will be soon!.

I write poems in my head often, but forget when it's the fingers turn to do the walking!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

Most of my poems grow in my head like unwanted fungus!. I write them down so I can trash them!. Your poems, however, add spices to the garden no matter where you finish them!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

Once in a while I do!. I usually have a mental image of something and piece it together as I write!. Occasionally I write on the fly, just let it flow!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

I am going to write a poem now 'bout Cillas poem head and Kays poem defianation!.!.!.
and when I get it all done!.!. do you want to read it!? It is kind of in my head now!.!. but stuck there!.!.!.

oops gotta get Reenie in there too!.!.!. sorry/Www@QuestionHome@Com

That's the sweetest satire I've ever read!. (Assuming it was satire!.)
And to answer your "question" - my entire head is a beautiful poem - I just can't get it to come out right!.

I can't wait MaddamWww@QuestionHome@Com

Yes!. Haven't learned how to make my pen write them yet in just the way I thought them though!. Always poppin' out looking different than what I thought !.Www@QuestionHome@Com

No, I write and it just flows!. I usually just make a few minor adjustments later!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

From the mouths of babes!.!.
What kind of dog did they get!?
I should really know this, but I'm not 'lowed to talk about it!.!.!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

I never know until I type the first few words!.
I know the essence, but that is all!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
