More and more youth of this age are being infected with a disease that inhibits their work and thought. It affects them slowly, eventually halting all progress they could make. It is sinister in nature and few even realize it's happening. It starts when they throw all limits away and continue down that path. No one can help them out of their plight and no medication is possible. Though they may take steps to reverse the affects, it is impossible to entirely recover. This disease is called free verse. It kills creative ability by allowing the writer to believe his prose is poetry. This has led to much of what is called modern poetry being nothing more than rearranged prose. Poetry is supposed to be metered line. It does not require rhyme, but meter is necessary. We are at a point where everything goes and it's killing art.
