Poem

Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas,
California, Colorado, Connecticut, and more.
Delaware, Georgia, Florida, Hawaii, Idaho,
Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, only 35 to go.

Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine,
Maryland, Massachusetts, and Michigan,
Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana,
Nebraska’s 27, #28’s Nevada.

New Hampshire, New Jersey, and way down, New Mexico,
New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio.
Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, now let’s see:
Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee.

There’s Texas, and there’s Utah, Vermont, I’m almost through,
Virginia, and there’s Washington, and West Virginia, too.
Could Wisconsin be the last one in the forty-nine?
No, Wyoming is the last one, in the fifty states that rhyme!
