THE RHYMER’S RETORT
Here’s my take on the burning issue of our time… to rhyme or not to rhyme.
The literati’s basic primer:
Hate the rhyme and loathe the rhymer
To them there’s really nothing worse
Than metered, rhyming, structured verse
Doggerel is what they shout
The rhymer’s work is all about
A vulgar form that just brings joy
To simple, unwashed hoi polloi
But gladly we endure their scorn
Their condescension lightly borne
Let them mock and scoff and shun
To hell with art, we’re having fun!
