    Kansas

    Yes I live in Kansas
    No not on a farm.
    Yes I live in Kansas
    NO! I will bear my arms!

    Yes I live in Kansas
    No I've not seen Oz.
    Yes I live in Kansas
    No, we have laws.

    Yes I live in Kansas
    No it's not all wheat.
    Yes I live in Kansas
    No, we get the heat.

    Yes I live in Kansas
    No, we have trees
    Yes I live in Kansas
    No, sometimes it's just a breeze

    Yes I live in Kansas
    No I've not seen tornadoes
    Yes I live in Kansas
    No, WE have the best bucks and does!

    Yes I live in Kansas
    And YES! it's really, really flat!

    I like it. Very catchy and lighthearted. Writing things such as these are a great source of fun and a great way to relax. I appreciate the concept represented here, the whole stick it to "the man" attitude. I also like how it breaks stereotype. Contradictions always catch my eye. The form is solid and stable. I didn't see any grammatical errors and I thought that an appropriate amount of punctuation was used. As hard as I might try, I can't find anything worth changing. Good job!

    Poetry is not the expression of personality but an escape from personality.

    T. S. Eliot (1888-1965) American-English poet and playwright.
