Poetry has to rhyme for me!


Poetry has to rhyme for me
Or else its Prose
And full of words
I can’t claim I’m a devotee
Or presuppose
I’m not absurd
And yet there is no guarantee
I won’t compose
If you preferred
And you made me your nominee
I would not oppose
When you inferred
My prose outweighed my poetry
Unlikely as that would ever be! !

    Don't you see? You do see!
    I wholeheartedly agree!
    But then again, that's just me...
    What a wondrous world this could be
    if poets rhymed their poetry. (Report) Reply
