Narrative Poem Examples:

I Still Love You, You're My Big Brother
by Jade

You were always a risk taker,

Especially in the car, you liked to burn rubber,

My mates thought it was funny, it was cool,

When you gave them a lift and played the fool.

Driving with no hands, hanging out the sun roof,

Shutting you eyes and generally being a goof

Thinking you were some Evil Knieval.

Did you know you'd cause this upheaval?
