2015 Day 16 – Dear verse

Dear verse,
It’s okay
To rant and rage and curse,
Be stubborn and perverse.
You’re mistaken
If you suppose your metre
Makes you sweeter
Than a rose
Or some finely-tuned prose.
It’s no crime
To eschew the use of rhyme
If the words you use have meaning,
Touch the heart,
Punch the gut
But
When form and meaning come together
Then your metric feet wear Docs,
You kick ass,
You rock.

Note: the prompt was “Today, I challenge you to write a poem that addresses itself or some aspect of its self.”
