Rolling change while reading poetry

Rolling change while reading poetry
Frustrating rolls
Frustrating words
Forty nickels
Forty syllables
Fifty dimes
Fifty lines
If I only had a quarter
For every word I read
I could have many rolls of pennies
And many pomes read

    The 40/50 40 nickels 40 syllables fifty dimes fifty lines thing was obscure but I like when he's like "if only I had a quarter" for reading as much poetry as I have read. I could have made rolls of pennies [the line I really start to get him] and many more I'm assuming he means more poems read. The writer of this poem gives clues and hints in every line of the poem but then you get lost at the end "where is he going with his conclusion?"

    Not sure what kind of poem this is. If someone could let me know I would appreciate it.

    I'd call it free verse. It it was rhymed, then I'd call it simply Rhyme. Thanks for stopping by to read my Disappoinkment. It's appreciated. C.L.
