I feel sick because I have a fever,
do I need to see the doctor the day after?
I feel sick because my throat hurts,
I shouldn't have eaten too much chocolates and desserts.
I feel sick because of body malaise,
geez don't ask me what that means mate.
I feel sick because I am cranky,
or was it because I'm cranky I feel sick and lousy?
I feel sick because I have this rash,
oh my a new symptom, I dare not ask.
I feel sick but I'll stop complaining,
because with some rest I'll be up and running.
I feel sick, but now I'm okay,
because you'll stay by my side for a perfectly whole day.
I feel sick, but now I'll sleep,
knowing you're on the sofa, near me to keep.
I feel sick, but never again,
shall I make you worry about me my friend.
My selfish desire to keep you near,
will not be the cause of your panic and fear.
I feel sick no more.
This is an example of a list poem
1) The writer is telling you something--pointing something out--saying, "Look at this," or, "Think about this."
2) There's a beginning and end to it, like in a story.
3) The list is arranged with stylistic consistency and the words are arranged to create a parallel structure.
