Smiling Faces by by Stephen Jarrell Williams

I like the enjambment at the end of the fourth line of this poem. It's playful. I also like the overall irony of this poem. Good job.

Enjambment: n. The continuation of a syntactic unit from one line or couplet of a poem to the next with no pause.

Hey everybody! I learned a new word.

And you gotta' admit.

That's a great line.

This one scared me, once I read the enjambment, of course.

Ooops! I meant to put enjambment in the subject line (too much Mad Hatter over the weekend).
I liked the very last line too - It's why I voted for this poem in the Feb. poll.
Since the house is on fire - at least let us warm ourselves.
