P-O-PP-O-P: He’s some guy you have to see.
P-O-PP-O-P: He’s a magical thief.
If you want to trade a quarter for a penny,
He’s some guy you have to see.

This poem is inspired by my PopPop. He came for a visit a week before the day I wrote this poem. I started to make this a song, but I ran out of words, so I changed it to a poem. PopPop always does magic. But sometimes, he trades a quarter for a penny. He likes to trade so HE gets the most money. We had sooooooo much fun while they were here. We built a coin bank with a REAL hammer and REAL nails. And we built a Wedgit tower TALLER than PopPop! And went on a hike to Alachua Lake, I mean, Payne’s Prairie, where we saw alligators, wild horses, and turtles. And we built the BEST marble run ever! I love PopPop and Grammy.

Rhythm, Love, and Poetry,

Tanner.
