A POEM FOR THE RHYME OF OUR TIME
This time I write a rhyme for the exception
The rule has had quite enough attention
I say that this is surely my opinion
This is a rhyme for our time.
When I find there is time there is decision
Where I decide to make space for concentration
If the exceptions are the few who
Are obeying the rules
I think that is quite a contradiction!
Someone made so much of a something
As simple as it could be it was not complete
It needed some complexity
And no lack of sympathy
The flavor a symphony it would be
Worth any discrepancy!
So, I scrutinize my lines
If there is an error, I will find it
Not really trying to be perfect
If I wanted it exactly right
I ended up doing something else instead
Time to rhyme, no time like today…
