When you call a person a drip,
Itís a derogatory quip.
A leaky roof on a rainy day,
Increases the gloom most would say.
A dripping faucet will annoy
And likely will detract from joy.
A person with a dripping nose
Will cause distress where ere he goes.
Drips of paint are not often good,
Hard to remove, itís understood.
A quarrelsome woman, its said,
Is like constant dripping on your head.
Like stopping the wind when it blows,
How to stop her complaints, no one knows.
Now, please consider, if you will,
The needs drip irrigation fills.
Water is evenly dispersed,
Relieving the plants of their thirst.
Evaporation not so much,
Other benefits, such and such.
Intravenous drippings good,
When someone canít eat as they should.
Many lives have been saved that way.
That is a good thing any day.
So even drips can be quite good,
When we understand as we should.
People need a closer look too,
So weíll have the right point of view.

Good job telling of all the meanings of "drip". I enjoyed this one very much. Maybe you could break the poem up into stanzas, it would be easier on the eye. Great Job!

Nice poem! I like how it delves into the various meanings and eventually finds a good one.
Well done.
