So, I had this idea, and I don't think I could make it into an actual poem myself, but I thought it would make a good thread.

Take an animal (it started when I heard some mourning doves), ask it a question (I asked--wait for it--WHAT IT WAS MOURNING! How original.) and then add rhyme.

I'll start. (Well, duh.)
~~~~~
"Whatcha mournin', Mournin' Dove?"
"Sally Sue has lost her glove."

"Why ya yowlin', alley cat?"
"My poor tail got squished by a bat."
~~~
And so on, in the style of a children's book. XD
"Ok, Lolpup. You can be a girl worth fighting for."

I always knew that deep down in every human heart, there is mercy and generosity. No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.
