About My Poetry
Yes, I'll admit I like to play
With words when they are rhyming.
Yes, I too admit I like to play
With the cadence and the timing.
Why does this fact upset you so?
Because my poetry has rhythm?
I always thought in poetry
That this was all a given!
It's time I think to have a think on:
What is poem?
What is prose?
What is classified as poetry?
What is classified as writing?
Why should free-form fit in this?
What should be done with skiting?
When is a poem called a poem?
We should think more about all this!
I suspect that some so called ‘poets'
Are just taking the p..!
