Poetic Rant

Posted on

I cannot sit here

Chained to my ideas

Of where the words go

How the lines should flow

But I do it

I take my manifesto

And blend it into pesto

Stomp on the rules

Like grapes in the vat

Pour the wine

And that is that

Rhyming schemes

Become my scams

Hazing and glazing me

Like a …

Hah! I won’t fall for it

Not this time

Fiddling with phonetics

To get it right

When right is wrong

And black is white

I won’t sit here

Shackled by decree

With no intent to follow

  9. I like the idea of blending the pesto and pouring the wine, both great plans! I also think we should each find our own tune rather than follow rules.

    Poetry into food and wine, how divine.
