Some people diss me for the way that I write
They say to rhyme just isn't quite right.
"It's not really poetry, is it, come on".
I just want to tell them I think that they're wrong!
They don't take me seriously, but thats not what I need.
I want them to take something outta what they read.
Not to skim over it and put it down with a smile,
But to show an interest and study it a while.
They think that by saying, that it rhymes well
is doing the right thing, they'd rather not dwell
I don't think they realise: just what it means
to write down these thoughts, there's more than there seems
It's not much to ask, just to take a little time
to look deeper into that 'silly little rhyme'
They think it's a limerick, or a bit of a laugh
an ode to a car, or a punchline perhaps
I guess I am speaking to all those who rhyme.
Keep going with it it isn't a crime.
Some say it's easy and not hard to do.
" I can do it, it' simple, look I'll show you"
They write something that rhymes and it can be quite good.
But thats not what I do, I don't write like I 'should'!
What I'm trying to say is believe it or not.
A lot of thought goes into these poems I've got.
And on that note I'm at the end of my rhyme
Or as some would say the end of my crime.
