Persona Poem

"Write a poem from the perspective of someone you aren't."
-The jist

It doesn't sound that hard, does it? Except, I'm having a terrible time of it. I just can't get a hold of an entry-point on this one. Ugh. The only thing I can think of is a story my mom told me about how her grandfather forbid her to learn German, "You're an American. Americans speak English."

I think this may be the worst poem I've written during this class. *sigh*
