Sonnet: Future Of Poetry - Poem by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,

Poems I thought had good rhythm and Rhyme,
And a moral good at the end of each;
Good Poems I thought should the test of time,
And remained well within the masses’ reach.

Poems I thought had nice music in them,
With apt words placed in right place in each case;
It was a time for Poetry’s Anthem;
Alas, the art is in for a rat-race!

Modern Poetry that is being writ,
From Prose is hard to ever from it sift;
Slang, vulgarities somehow find a place;
’Tis doomsday for poetry at this pace!

Turned has the Wheel of Time almost fully;
’Tis time to draw water with the pulley!
