Poetry is subjective and can be written how you like;
There are many different ways in which to write.
You can put it down as prose or create some double rows,
Triangles, squares etc. are alright.
I had feedback yesterday from a person with no name;
I guess most of you have had some too.
He said my poetry's bad, archaic and awfully RANK;
But I don't write for him, I write for some of you.
Constructive criticism is welcomed by us all
To help us all achieve a higher goal.
To knock for knockings sake is very bad indeed
It makes a normal person less than whole!
If you have something to say, make sure you give a rock
To the person you wish to criticise.
Give them helpful hints; you'll find that the response
Will illuminate from their grateful eyes!
