A Nihilist Approach To Poetry

No point in drafting
what use the stanza
lines need no crafting
rhythm doesn't matter what your plans are

Form has no function
four, five lines - so what?
No point in feeling any compunction
about rhyming or not
who needs a bon mot?

Poems can only repeat
poems can only repeat
what everyone inwardly rehearses
actually there's no need for verses
everyone's ode something
might as well write prose and easy on the paragraphs
and the punctuation spelling sense makup onionstylfyulik
