The Perfect Poem

The perfect poem will consist
Of things that do and don't exist
With future tense and also past
So, through the ages, it might last

And make it's words like a song
So that others might sing along
And if you have some extra time
Put in effort to make it rhyme

Big words are fine as long as we
Can understand each one with ease
And make it's meaning strong and deep
So that, into hearts, it may seep

Or slam a stanza in their ear
And watch them nod their heads and cheer
That's when you know your points been made
And in your path success is laid

This is one of my new favorites, it's rhyme is catchy and very upbeat. Gives you a good feel.
