  The essence of poetry
Said Robert Frost
Is that in translation
Which gets lost
But yowlers to this
Pay no heed
Raw words to them
Is poetry indeed

To them today
It does appeal
To write about
Just how they feel
Lying in bed
What comes to head
Then arrange in lines
Of two, three, four
There’s no pleasure
In poetry anymore

Rhyme now stinks
Faces uncertainty
Stares at it
Banshee
A new system’s being
Advocated now
Where rhyme’s not needed
Anyhow
A new world order
I suppose
Where Toddlers would memorize
Nursery prose!
