What is a poem?

December 10, 2009
What is a poem? is it a bunch or rhyming words?

Like hop on pop, that fun run, or the bird knows the password,

A beautiful short story that brings a tear to your eye?

About some pretty princess that ran off with an ugly guy?

Or a bunch of crazy, pointless mess that only makes sense to the author,

Like "Puddintame oh won't you be my precious king arthur!"

Strike one!, Strike two!, Strike three!

all those answers are wrong,

A poem isnt classified as a sonnet, ballad or song

No, a poem is your heart bleeding its thoughts through every pore,

Taking over your robotic brain so it can function no more,

Unlocking the secret world of love and hurt and tears

That is what a poem is, the turning of the gears
