Places and Faces



Write me a poem my mother said.
You can think it up, right in your head.
Tell me about the places you've been.
The people you met, women or men.
What do they do? Where do they work?
Were they nice or were they a jerk?
So many people fill up the earth,
if you add them all up, how much are they worth?
Now add the people to all these places.
Citys, farms, mountains, valleys, rivers,
oceans and faces,
so much to write, in about all cases.
I knew you could do it, now write me a book.
Tell us a story about the trip we took.
