Land Is Planned - Poem by Kranthi Pothineni

My foolish beat asked me, why?
Why night rhymes well with fight?
Why it rhymes with quite and bright?
Why it also rhymes with the light?
Tell me why? , asked my foolish beat

My beat continued its foolish beat
By saying why pain rhymes rain?
Why it rhymes chain as well as stain?
Why rhymes well with main and gain?
Tell why these words rhyme? , it asked

Its noise went on and on and on, asking
Why 'hi' rhymes very well with 'bye'?
Why this sky rhymes with fly?
Why cry with eye and lie with die?
And it asked, Why, why rhymes shy?

So I answered my restless foolish beat
If I say true then it will rhyme with blue
If I do wrong it will rhyme with strong
And in the end birth rhymes with earth
Then foolish beat said, well, land is planned

    There is a saying 'Why sky is so high? Because grandmother told a lie.' The words 'sky' and 'lie' rhymes, but is there any sense in these two lines?
    Rhyming should be meaningful, as you say.
