The Rules of Poetry - Rule No 1

The Rules of Poetry.

Poetry rules Ė ok
Or so the poets say
But isnít it ironic, that
They should feel that way?

When what they seek
With pen poised over page
Is an escape from the prosaic
And mundane verbal cage

They write of freedom and of love
Of birds all flying free
But anally confine themselves
Is that not an elegy?

How then do I love thee
Let me count the words
Iíve got to get the rhythm right
And what word rhymes with words?

There is rhyme - but it is rude - so we won't mention it !!

I like the witty poem.

As I eat it on my brownie
Not doubting it's sweet
Ice cream is a tasty treat
Lots of lingering taste
Lasting to the end
Always my favourite!

The dying plant bends
And drips its dew to the ground
It falls like a tear

My English teacher wants me to use imagination
So I go to math class and let my mind go on vacation!

A flea and a fly in a flue
Were caught, so what could they do?
Said the fly, "Let us flee."
"Let us fly," said the flea.
So they flew through a flaw in the flue.
Examples that follow rules of some sort
