It’s really not.

If you can’t rhyme a rose

Then why not call it prose?

If words do not obey

And meters slip away

Then why not call it prose?

A lovely thought arose

It was perfect, or close

You grabbed a pen and wrote

But it struck false a note

Why can’t you call it prose?

You hear anything goes

Read jumbled, versèd rows

But poems ought to rhyme

Do try another time

And just call this one prose!
