"The Golf Links Lie So Near the Mill"

 "The Golf Links Lie So Near the Mill"

 By: Sarah Cleghorn

 The golf links lie so near the mill
That almost every day 
The laboring children can look out
And see the men at play.

Clearly, this poem is extremely short and concise and is written in an ABCB rhyme scheme. When a poem is this short, every word in the poem is chosen for a specific reason even if it doesn't seem like it. However, this small poem contains a large social message and is actually a satire.
