I believe that through all of time

Poems help make life sublime

But I also believe that one must grieve

For a poems lacking in rhyme.

The stuff call free verse is an art

In which poetry plays not a part

The wise reader knows, without rhyme, it’s prose

And cannot as well touch the heart..

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!
