23 Skidoo

Inspired by the Day  Day Six  Na/GloPoWriMo prompt: Why we need poetry.

I’m beginning to wonder about that myself because:

 

Yesterday I learned

that poetry has rules

that you must follow

1-2-3

 

Yesterday I leaned

that poets, true poets, real poets

follow those rules

1-2-3

MARCH ON CUE

 

Learn those rules so that you can

be a poet too

1-2-3-4

Left,right,left,right, right, left, right left!

 

You know what?
Screw that

and may I add

soulfully, poetically,

23 skidoo

stupid poetry rules.
