Now Hear This!

Didactic verse is good for you No matter what they say. Constrains your vice till you think twice Before your morals stray. It’s literary spinach, yes… Eat your vegetables in verse: Avoid all booze, lewd lust refuse And never ever curse. A poem must be purposeful `Else should not exist. Advise and preach—best bards beseech Temptations you resist!
