Doesn’t Anyone Need Regularity Anymore?


Where’s gone the meter?

I can’t find the rhyme – inner or outer?

Thematic material usually meaningful,

Often important,  I have to admit –

So we’ll skip that critique.

Syntax? Well, I can accept unformed sentences –

Part of the license poetic.    But why

Waste the time

When the poem

Is an appellation for prose, actually

I want, no, I need

A nice, user-friendly,



Straightforward verse

To learn from, take pleasure in,

Not knocking ‘noodle’ to hell,

And/or busting a gut

Attempting to figure it out.
