Lurking on #IRAChat about cause and effect, I thought of this poem.
Cause and effect brings its consequences from world politics (you kill my people, I hate you and do my best to kill your people), to Main Street (you cheat me, I don’t return to your store) right home to the kitchen (slice that bagel wrong and it’s stitches for you!) But no place is cause and effect more personal than in terms of friendship.
A little poem animation to share in classrooms, for discussion, as a writing prompt, or just because.
BTW, my book Wham! It’s a Poetry Jam is soon to be released in a Kindle version by Boyds Mills Press.
