A poem: They're awful (by Max Fatchen)

Read out the poem and have students fill the gaps.
Then talk about the content of the poem.
Can they write an opposite poem? Maybe called They're awesome

I hate them a lot …
People who are always telling the plot.
Of television series,
And how books end,
The menu for dinner,
Whether it's cold or hot;
Who always want to ride in the front seat of cars,
Whether it's their place
Or not
And who are always interrupting
And shouting
'WHAT'
I hate the lot.
