Free Verse

Free verse is free---from verse,
But verse is poetry's body.
That's why free verse is shoddy:
It wants to be something,
But holds on to nothing.
Free verse is free---from verse.

    Very intriguing poem here for sure. I both disagree and agree with it! Ha ha! Paradoxes, oxymorons, strong metaphors, with a dash of meter and rhyme, can make free verse into some really good paradoxical "slavery" verse~Chris

    Interesting take on Free verse, just makes room for poetry that does not fit other molds. thanks for sharing. Judy Riley
