On How to Judge a Poem
Poems are made by poets
As pet lovers adopt pets
And just like pets, these poems are judged
From sad as death to sweet like fudge
If these poems are judged 'How then? ' you ask
Are they judged at the size of the task?
Or are they judged at the words used?
Are they judged for the feelings infused?
Some say they're judged by the rythm used
Some say they're judged by the comments diffused
Some like them happy, some like them sad
Some like them funny, some like them mad
I know you may not agree with me
If you look clearly you will see
A poem is judged not by form nor chords
But by the story hidden behind its words.
