Prompt: What is the gist of the text?
The gist of the text is that a boy name Jack doesn't want to write any poetry. He says that he thinks poetry is only for girls. He tries to write poetry, but he says he can't and that his brain was empty. He also shares that he didn't understand the poem about the wheelbarrow. He wrote a poem, and didn't like it. He didn't want his teacher to read it out loud, or post it on the wall.
