Example of Repetition

Here is a poem that demonstrates repetition

Car Sick

I'm car sick

Open a window

I'm car sick

Take this pill

I'm car sick

Rest your eyes

I'm car sick

Shh. Be still

I'm car sick

Drink some ginger ale

I'm car sick

Can you try to wait?

I'm car sick

Now we're almost there

I feel better

Darn! Too late

Why I chose this poem

The underlined parts are the parts that show what repetition means. I chose this poem to represent repetition because it repeats many times and is a good representation of repetition for this reason.
