THE WORLD IS A WONDERFUL, WONDERFUL PLACE – A REVERSE POEM by Estrella W, Year 8 LGGS

A reverse poem has one meaning when it’s read forwards but it’s proper meaning is revealed when read backwards, so once you’ve read it, it’s important to read it the other way round.

It isn’t beautiful
You are foolish to disagree and say that
It’s people are amazing and
The wildlife is stunning,
That the world is wonderful
Because the truth is
That it’s pointless
And that people are horrible and
Everything is the same
That there’s no individuality and
Everything is bad
So, don’t think
The world is a wonderful, wonderful place
