Thank god poetry is not my vice,
Sprouting words like pearl green rice.
Being naturally averse to verse,
I naturally can't think of anything worse.
Quite frankly, if I had my choice,
I would honor only poetry that had no voice,
That could only be heard without being said,
Or written only after the poet was dead.
