What is Exotic?

A poem finished. Hope you all are having fun summers. ūüėČ

[Back story: Before the¬†beginning of one school year, ¬†my ¬†teacher had us do a fun question sheet. One question asked,¬†‘Whats the most exotic place you’ve been?’¬†My answer: ” Uh…¬†Branson¬†Missouri.” Really, I don’t get around much.¬†Here’s the poem inspired by that.]

Your Best

When time is plenty

When time is tight

A gift once chosen,

will last more than twice

the best gift
