Some say it isn’t bona fide poetry if there’s no rhyme.

This mustn’t be so, for all that’s mine

Lives on in existence without pre-governed schemes.

And hello there, what about the Facebook memes?

Poetry is walking all around us, in every which way;

Here and there it frolics, always ready to play.

Poetry is as poetry does,

A poem is everything you think it was.

No need for make-up and a new dress

To make something ostensibly beautiful from what others call a mess,

No need to have similes, metaphors, and all that stuff;

It’s disingenuous, avoiding content and theme, while remembering fluff.

I write for the sake of writing.

If I must please others, I’m only fighting

Me, myself, and I.

To write a poem, or what I consider poetry, this isn’t goodbye.
