The last poem of National Poetry Month comes from reader Brendan P. Donohue, now the official Axios Tampa Bay Poet Laureate!

The Hustle is real Each & every single day Yet it really has nothing On Axios in Tampa Bay  When the Sun rises It always likes to shine It shines a little brighter When you read yours & I read mine  The device doesn't matter It is really just a fruit So whether an Apple or a BlackBerry  Axios doesn't give a hoot  Reading is for pleasure  Learning causes pain Stimulating thoughts Are so good for the brain  Keep on reading You will like it if you try This Company is Local The material is never dry  The rain & the Lighting  Is always plenty in Tampa Bay Give Axios some attention
Poem by Brendan P. Donohue

Keep writing, rhyming and reading, folks!
