List Poem Example :

What's in the junk drawer
Tools that were once needed but are now buried away
A pair of safety goggles that keep no one safe
A tape measure that once helped build a home
A pair of scissors too dull to cut
A roll of masking tape which is too old to stick
A broken crayon from a child's masterpiece long forgotten
A hammer too big for the drawer, but still finding a home
A memory of useful things now hidden away
