Lather, Rinse, Repeat

liberty in verse atypical on the Soup born a free-spirited caballero I’ll not dangle from another poet’s noose jigsaw puzzles presented by contest sponsors jump through hoops win their accolades who’s to say what makes good verse? flash your PhD at me “Oh yes, oh yes, you are the best,” most wholeheartedly agree those who compromise win a nebulous prize preset rhyme patterns syllable and word counts twisted forms, multiple forms, mega-forms atrocities created messages secondary to prescribed presentations poetic constipation forced by over-regulation
