A poem by Kevin Somers.

I'm not one to go back in time
But for heaven's sake bring back the rhyme
Here's a secret everyone knows
Poetry without rhyme is prose;
Himalayans anyone can climb
Excuse me, poet, you may not know it
Or maybe you just don't show it
But my time is precious, too
Let's not waste it all on you
So, please, get to the point, poet
No one wants a cryptic pout
Then hours trying to figure it out
"Poetry" is pleasure for everyone
If it doesn't make sense then it isn't fun
Ask a child if you still have doubt
So keep it simple, my poetic friend
Simple enough that even I comprehend
And remember levity is always a hit
And brevity is the soul of wit
As you work your way to The End
