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?
