This I Believe

I believe that throughout all time

Poetry helps make life sublime

No need for a plot, just a beautiful thought

And the great satisfaction of rhyme.

I believe that the stuff called free verse

To call it a poem is a curse

The wise person knows, if there’s no rhyme, it’s prose

Maudlin, effete, maybe worse.

I believe that rhyme is the key

To the beauty found in poetry

So let’s not admire the free versifier

And give credit to rhymers like me!
