These darn emo kids and their darn poetry, amiright? What’s funny to me is that Amanda, while mocking Kevin’s lit knowledge, doesn’t even like poetry. She likes being smart, successful, and well-educated, though, so if she’s expected to learn poetry then by god, she’ll learn the poetry. Doesn’t mean she’ll like it, though. And unfortunately for her, it does mean she probably won’t really get in depth with understanding it either. Welp. Can’t be good at everything. Deciding you don’t like the things you aren’t good at is way easier anyway.
Here, have some links for further reading.

You don’t need to read each poem to understand the scene or to get anything coming up in Tomodachi Forever, not really, but there IS a reason each character is drawn to each poem they’ve chosen. Pretty much any time you see a specific song, poem, etc mentioned, it means something. Plus I just can’t help sharing the things I like with y’all. <3
