Of Poems & Rhymes
When a poem ditches rhyme, and reads like an essay, Does it still have the spirit of a poem, would you say? I’m not a native speaker, Nor do I hold a linguistics degree, But the schemes of ABAB, or AABB, I grew up learning, have become very dear to me! Is poet a title better? Couldn’t you just be an orator? Or were you just pressed for time, And forgot the scheme of rhyme? Aaah! I don’t care for your rules and schemes, I’mma gonna write my own universe, You do your letter matching, purists, I’m a rebel, I’ll do my free verse.
