Po Am by Bill Schott
Nonconformity writing prompt entry


Conformity in poetry

makes meter mean the most,

the gone and went of goetry

means stepping on some toast.


 
I like to play with verse,

though some say it is worse,

to bend a format's frame,

when it should stay the - way it always was.


I would rename sonnets 'MIKE',

lim-e-RICKS would speak of SPIKE,

all haiku be 'bout crime,

and free verse cost a dime.


 
All sestina ending words

would be aquatic birds,

like penguins, ducks, and geese,

which swim the seven ... seize the non sequitur.


I could write an ode,

all in Morse code,

or a portmanteau,

'bout an or-ang-a-roo.


 
Nonconformity in poetry

makes rhyming less a thing,

but spilling and punk-shoe-a-shun

must remain impotent!  Zing?
