I was cleaning out unwanted documents from my hard drive and stumbled upon this piece.

This was an assignment I had three years ago for my AP Language and Composition class when we were covering The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald.

The assignment was to write a short poem in a similar format to that of William Carlos Williams' poem, "This is just to Say", minus the "This is just to say" line. We were tasked with writing a poem consisting of three four-line stanzas. We had to write one for each character and one for Fitzgerald himself.

These poems aren't something I'm proud of as they were rushed when I originally wrote them and didn't put much heart into them, but they're something at least.
