I'm Your Mailman

Hello I'm your mailman.
See me walking down your blocks.
Going from door to door,
I've got a package for your box.

I just deliver to the address,
though I don't know whats within.
I hope its not to big to fit,
so I can slip it in.

Sometimes they are awaiting,
the package when it arrives.
Other times the mail piles up,
makes no difference in their lives.

Sometimes I'm greeted with anger,
and some are ever so kind.
Mostly I just leave the mail
unless I need something signed.

I never complain about the weather
or the many, miles I log.
The exercise can never hurt,
but there is an occasional dog.

I try to get there on time
and I hope I never fail.
Please remember I'm not a magician,
I only deliver the mail

I had a 'junk mail' delivery route when I was in college, so I can relate to this, especially the part about dogs. Is this written from experience?

Your observation of mailmen is spot on! You're right. They're not magicians. I love your use of rythm and meter. Thank you for writing a poem about one of the hardest working forces in America. Wonderful job.

OK, innocent poem... innocent enough. And innocent comments as well. I won't ruin the streak. I'll keep my mouth shut. :-)

Hey nice write. I'll never see the mail man the same again. Promise.

This poem certianly complies with the contest rules to write about a mailman. I have to admit that I found myself smiling as I read through the story. This work is presented well, with a good rhyme scheme and good imagery as a smooth flow. It flows smoothly and makes an enjoyable read.
