Call It A Poem

Just read a poem,
read line by line.
seemed more like a story,
with no reason or rhyme.

chaotic and clumsy,
is how they all read.
Read just a verse,
I'm sure you'll agree.

I don't feel like thinking,
I feel a bit ho-hum.
I'll slap together phrases,
and call it a poem.

[Hata Bildir]
