The Poem

Rhyme alone is not enough -

A poem's made of sterner stuff.

But if you only write free verse,

It often turns out even worse -

For if you've nothing true to say,

You'll fail for sure, whichever way

That you may choose to say it -

The only way to really play it

Is to marry content with the form

And thus create the perfect storm.
