Pantoum Poem

So before you read this poem I just want to explain it a little bit. This was an exercise we did in my creative writing class. What we did was take ten fortunes from fortune cookies and we had to follow a certain pattern. Anyway here is my poem. It doesn't make any sense, but it is kind of funny. Enjoy.

There are riches headed your way.
Our first choice is always wisest to follow.
You will be successful in your work.
Now it is best to take things just one step at a time.

Your first choice is always wisest to follow.
Your future looks bright.
Now it is best to take things just one step at a time.
Make your dreams a reality.

Your future looks bright.
Your charm and courtesy will be advantageous in goals.
Make your dreams a reality.
Today will be pleasant, your life will be prosperous.

Your charm and courtesy will be advantageous in goals.
You will soon take a very pleasant and successful trip.
Today will be pleasant, your life will be prosperous.
You will make a name for yourself.
