Poems don't need to rhyme
All they need is a meter
Then why do mine?
'Cause I drink coffee by the liter
Now, what sort of reasoning is that?
Oh, just the sort that makes me feel bad
It does not! It does too!
So, what! As long as I entertain you.
Ah, you say, but this isn't worth beans
Nah, say I, so it only seems
But look I made you read this far and I'm not even touting my book
I whiled away your time and mine
You needn't ponder a thing this time
Happy or sad
Aha, you say, for that I am glad.
See? It isn't just me
Who needs a break from all the woe
You, too, my friend, could do with a little glee
Wasting your time just once
may set you free.
