i often get chastened

for omitting punctuation

for not capitalizing my i's

they have branded me unwise

thought mister ee paved the way

he was a pioneer poet in his day

since we share the same name

on him i will dump blame

so if i emulate him

is it his sin

if words are raw

have we broken the law

some comments don’t make any sense

unless the poetry police revoked my license

I strongly believe that a true poet writes what he wants, expresses in his own way, does not have to fence in his words with perimeters that others invented. I have no problem with people who op to do Haiku, Senrus, Odes, specific rhyme patterns etc but we must lways keep in mind someone invented these and there is no law of poetry...write what you feel.
