So many types of poetry

Since I've been on Poetrysoup I admit I was taken back By how many types of poetry My education seems to lack Could I make my rhyme a sixette Or would I be 3 short If I charged for a freeverse Would I be forced to abort How much must I remove to make my hexaverse diminished and then do I need more words before I can be finished Can I let my Rondeau Redouble Without too much trouble at first And must I be affiliated To attempt a political verse I guess I'll learn them one at a time Until then I'll just call them a rhyme

Thank you Elissa. It's a slow go but I'm learning I think. By the way I really liked your acrostic "Criminal Minds" Loved the poem, love the show, finally Spencer got out of jail! :)

Thank you so much. I've read several of your poems and It's hard to imagine a world of poetry without you in it. Hugs back :)
