I Found This Shirt

"Hello. I am the average English poem.

Hello. I like to be friendly.

Approachable. Hello, I am happy

To share my observations of

Nature. I have noticed that at

Certain times of the year, seasons change.

I weep when I visit relatives

In hospital, and I am reminded

Of happier times . . . My sleek lover

Turns out to be a cat! Hello!"
