What would life be without poetry?

What would life be

without poetry?

Would it be better or worse

if it lacked such cool verse?

Would the days seem to drag

with no poetry swag?

Would the poetical profession

survive the digression

of rhythm and rhyme

disappearing in time;

and would all the things we read be just prose, when poetry was dead?

How boring that would be, don’t you think?

Like a frozen-screen television,stuck immobile, on the blink; giving nobody clarity of purpose and mind; keeping similes and metaphors hidden. How unkind.
