Hackers: Rhyme

by Nicholas Graham


Does a poem have to rhyme?
To make it worth the reading time?
A rhyme is just a pattern of sound
To which a poem is often bound.
Why should it matter if it is used,
When often it is just abused?

Metre I can understand,
A poem without it is often bland.
But rhyming is just a test of skill,
Of finding words that fit the bill.
If it matters, then I'll give up now,
Because to rhyme I'm not sure how.

  1. A crafty poem this surely is
    Much skill you have in rhyming bliss
    Your rhyming talent will take you places
    Just watch the look on people's faces
