Kent Oliver enjoys writing silly, and occasionally dark, poetry. Kent’s interest in writing poetry began when he had to memorize a poem in the 5th grade. He chose "The Raven" by Edgar Allan Poe. He then moved on to "The Charge of the Light Brigade" by Alfred, Lord Tennyson, and "Paul Revere's Ride" by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. If only he could grow facial hair like any of them, he would call his life complete.
