    Why Read?
    Why send your brain on a magnificent journey to a mystical place filled with rainbows and rabbits?
    Why take a break from the daily grind of life to become occupied battling the world's greatest kung-fu fighter?
    Why let your brain act as a sponge, absoring knowledge on Sir John A. Macdonald or World War I?
    Why should we read a bundle of lines to memorize and put on a great show?
    Why Read?
    Why not?

      lol. I didn't know if you'd post this here.. I have to agree with Cat and say that I prefer the second ending. The first one is good except that you're using questions throughout the poem and it kind of breaks the flow to end with just one assertive sentance.. Anywho.. that's what I think.

      wow this sparked alot of thoughts it also brought a smile to my face its powerfull enough to get even the stupidest of people to think the way you ask the questions made me feel like standing up in class and asking all of these question even though i have the answer i want some one else to tell me what they think i have to say good job :D

      I prefer the second ending. You were asked a question and by finishing it with the second option you're answering the question with a question which is something I've always been drawn to even if I find it slightly irritating when my young sister adopts that technique. It really works in this, I think it's well written although I found a spelling error/typo whatever you want to call it. Did you mean sponge because you wrote "spnge"?

    Be kind, take a few minutes to review the hard work of others <3
    It means a lot to them, as it does to you.
