The Day the Rhyme Died

I know I may be kidding myself, many see it as absurd. But just because they think that way... does it kill the written word? Should I not write in rhyme, Because it's no longer formal? When did expression through the art of words, become so strict and normal? If the melody has died, and the ancient bards subside... then I shall mourn the loss of beauty, that has receded into the tide.
