How to Write Poetry
It's really cool to write a poem,
so read these rules if you don't know 'em.
Invert I don't when writing verse.
To spell words wrong is even werse.
Select your rhyming words with care
or else you'll sound just like a bear.
And watch out for a female ending.
It might not rhyme as you were hoping.
Better yet, don't bother rhyming
for even Shakespeare wrote blank verse.
Don't vary your metre from stanza to next.
Your readers are sure to get pretty damned vexed.
Follow these rules and before you know it
you'll be a poet.
