How Little Girl Hassles(Free Verse) -4

In free verse, the old 'rules' are broken, the line itself becomes the only rule.The verse is strophic, not contained in uniform stanzas. It must breath, think and sound like the poet. The rhythm keeps time with the poet's own heart beat. To ignore its form is irresponsible. It may be more difficult to create a line of free verse than metered verse, the length, word choice and placement become an extension of the poet even more without the 'rule' of predetermined patterns. With free verse it is up to the poet to create his/her own rules

How Little Girl Hassles

'Look,
You've not eaten
Your lunch at all
Wonder how capable
You are to cheat
Your teacher
And me as well

And
If your friend slaps
Well, that is the punishment
You deserve
Now finish your lunch'

Angrily
Mamma corners
Herself into a sofa
Long faced

And
Little girl too
Crying with snuffling
And wailing weak
Finally falls asleep
The house is moody

But
Pappa and grand-pa
Don't seem to be bothered
Poor mamma only steps in
To wake up little girl
With consoling words

And
With loving hugs
Grand-ma whispers
'Don't worry dear
A song of praises to you
I'll sing to this whole world
I promise'

And
With that little girl
Gets back normal
Her day of dreaming
With grand-ma in sleep
Begins

And
Of course
A day of same design
Next day begins
Routine in sun's cycle

End
