If you’re averse to this pocket,
you’d better put a verse in yours!
Today would be a great day to heed the warning from Dr. William Carlos Williams.
Because it’s National Poem in Your Pocket Day!
And you thought you’d missed it.
Yes, it's that festive time of the year when you’re supposed to carry a favorite poem in your pocket (hence the day’s clever name).
Then, when family and friends least expect it, you are to pull it out and recite, recite with all your might.
Fear not — everybody knows about this holiday, so you won’t receive odd looks or get hauled off for a mental evaluation.
I've even heard that a good recitation can get you out of a speeding ticket.
Um, regarding that last bit, Whovians take note —
The Doctor lies.
Well, I prefer to call it fiction.
PROMPT: DO NOT be a LOSER like this guy:
No Poem = LOSER!
Put a poem in your pocket and participate!
