READING ESL: Just (poem)

Just

Just because of this

Just because of that.

Just because he’s white

Just because she’s black.

Just because of him

Just because of her.

Just because of this

Just because of that.

Thomas Napoli

Thank you to Thomas Napoli for letting me post his poetry to READING ESL

Poetry can be very useful for language learners, especially poems like this one that use very straightforward, everyday English. Poems are designed to be read quietly or out loud, and they are often read more than once. Poems are often quite short (compared to a story or article), but they can paint a very memorable picture. This poem, Just, has been written using a very common expression ‘just because’ over and over with different excuses.

You can make all the excuses you like, but there’s no real excuse for bad behaviour!
