Free Verse My Arse!!!
Don’t tell me that its free verse
That just means you haven’t tried
How can you throw out random words
Then sit there in some pride

If it has no form or structure
It has no right or place
I wonder that you have the Gaul
To even show your face

The title that is poetry
So long has been abused
You get off very lightly
If your wording is not fused

A chimp can hit a keyboard
Can even form a book
Though the gibberish he will create
Won’t get a second look

If you want the title poet
Then for god sakes do the job
Instead of words just scattered
In an effort just to fob

A very good poem! I'd say you definately deserve the title poet! I understand where you're coming from!

I listen to a US public radio station, and every morning the lauded "Poetry Foundation" reads some schlock that even I can see will never stand the test of time. Read my "Perfect" where I make fun of my own rhyming poetry and lament the praise given to some of this ethereal, senseless, storyless, pretentious, pointless crap out there! I've ranted, here and there, without form or structure, but promptly delete it as a fleeting need to write down what I'm feeling--not a creative expression to be shared.
