On Poetry

Poets today are lazy to rhyme,
too careless with meter, too rushed with each line.
Give me a verse with a well crafted phrase
and disperse with a curse all those dreary essays!
Adding a line-break does not create poetry;
those terse, broken phrases? Unintelligible vocally.
So get out your pen and play with the pace;
find the right word to fit the right space.
