I once tried to rhyme all my words with each other.
Writing love poems with the classic "roses are red and violets are blue"
Grade A kinda bullshit.
My originality was nonexistent
But who needs originality when you can have rhyme?
Because rhyming your words comes with the unofficial,
"you're a REAL poet" badge.
A badge that isn't given to you by fellow poets,
But sidewalk New York Best Times Best Seller wanna-be critics.
I once knew a guy who told that poetry was undefineable,
Because poetry comes from the soul,
And things that come from soul cannot have simple dictionary definitions.
So scrap the "you're a REAL poet" badge,
For one that says "undefineable" instead.
