.rhyme Is A Crime

Rating: 5.0
Since rhyming and rhythm are terribly boring
They must now be barred from all musical scoring;
Those poets employing these rhythms and rhymes
Should pay with their lives for committing such crimes!

Some nut must have thought that by using good meter
A poem with tempo would sound so much sweeter;
With stresses or accents to make the verse flow,
It's just a fine way to put on a good show!
The best of all verses, as anyone knows,

Don't worry. It's only a misdemeanor! Justice is blind and you didn't write in braille. Cheers! Chuck

I've had the same battle in my head many times, but never found such words - or rhymes! - to express this. Excellent work. Paul.

Bra-vo. I'm not so good at rythm and meter, and I've stretched a few rhymes, but to me - those are the things that differentiate an essay from poetry.
