Well, “Parks and Recreation” is over. And if you couldn’t tell by my Twitter feed, I’ve been pretty emotional about it. So emotional in fact, that I’ve decided to do something crazy. And Leslie Knope-like. Here I give you an acrostic poem devoted to my favorite comedy. Editor’s note: My roommates helped me emotionally get through this and offered suggestions.
Pawnee, Indiana is the most perfect place in the world, fictional or otherwise.
Amy Poehler, you are the epitome of everything I could ever hope for in a person and an actress.
Ron Swanson, you wood-carving, government-hating, amazing human being. You will always be my acquaintance.
K. The way I feel now that this is over.
Shauna Malwae-Tweep, thanks for portraying a journalist in a kooky way. I sure hope you find happiness.
April and Andy, hottest couple since, well, ever.
New episodes should be coming but they won’t be because apparently the world is a cruel place.
Donna, you are everything I could hope to be in life and more. I’m aware I am being dramatic, FYI.
Rashida Jones, Ann is the most beautiful nurse in the world.
Eagleton is the worst, always and forever.
Calling all waffle-lovers.
Rob Lowe, you’re literally the most positive character in all of TV (aside from season four).
Eggs and bacon, because what else?
All together now: Get on your feet!
Treat Yo Self + Twout! Twout! Twout!
I believe this show will live on in TV history for years and years and years to come.
OMG, how is this poem almost done?
Now and forever more, I love you, “Parks and Recreation.”
