Instructions for Helping the World

Instructions for Helping the World is my favorite poem of 2012.  I know.  I know.  The new year has just begun!  But still.  It’s an awesome poem.  It’s written by Greg Pincus, a kid’s lit blogger who is as prolific as he is talented.

Instructions for Helping the World is short (only 10 lines), but it packs a serious punch and should be required reading for all those “Back to The Three R” types out there.

Thanks Greg …  I would add that help might also come in the form of a warm bed, enough to eat, clean water and love but that’ll keep for another poem.

    Thanks, Sheryl! I agree that there are many other ways to help the world, many even more important than creating art. Still, sometimes art is what we’ve got to give!

    Happy New Year… and we’ll check at the end of the year if this remains your favorite poem 🙂
