A poem is a rhyming sentence or two that tells about the Beanie Baby that comes with it. It is usually 4 lines long, although it can be longer if the Beanie Baby is for a special occasion or is distributed to a certain group of people, like Ty employees. Not all Beanie Babies come with a poem, and instead could come with lines for your name and a receiver's name. These Beanie Babies were made to be like greeting cards.
The poems are always located on the Swing Tag that is on the Beanie Baby.
