From the days of Edmund Spenser
To the era of Millay,
Great poets wrote in rhyming verse,
Which then became passé.
As the moderns have discovered,
When you write of timeless love,
You’ve run clean out of rhyme words
After using up “above!”
A sing-song verse now ranks among
The worst poetic sins.
But a rhyme is still effective
When it’s just for shits and grins!
