Poetic license is a feat,

Which enables one to cheat,

And one does it all the time,

If one is trying to write in rhyme.

Grammar, syntax and even spelling,

Can be distorted, if on rhyme one is dwelling

But, since to rhyme in modern poetry is a disgrace,

In it , poetic license has no place.

So, why that poetry is so bland,

And sometimes difficult to understand ,

I really do not know,

Why it should be so.

But, when one comes to think of it,

And linger on the brink of it,

Not only modern poetry makes one start,

But, also modern music and modern art.

So, just as beauty is in the eyes of the beholder,

Modern poetry, music and art, are not appreciated when you’re older.
