''My Poem That's So Well-Writ''

My poem that beats and rhymes 
     must throb with rhythmic time 
to the cadence and the chimes 
     of ev'ry line right on the dime.

My poem that swings and flows 
     must move with perfect meter  
to the feet of highs and lows 
     just nice and tight but neater. 

My poem that hums a sound
     with every note of stress
rebounds and hangs around 
     with balladic artifice.

My poem that’s so well-writ
     with obvious good pitch
won’t die if I go sell it
     to Marlowe’s rival bitch!*

* Line 16 of this poem, “…to Marlowe’s rival bitch!,” alludes to William Shakespeare. Christopher Marlowe and Shakespeare were rival poets and playwrights during the Elizabethan Era of 16th-century England.
