A matter of opinion
Some people say I am perverse
because I choose to write in verse.
The kind of stories I compose.
They think I ought to write in prose.
They have the right to I suppose.
But I wonít do as they propose.
I much prefer to write in verse
Because I think thereís nothing worse
Than badly written boring prose.
That is the reason why I chose.
To concentrate on rhyming verse.
I see no reason to reverse.
My original decision
to conform to your opinion.
I do not choose to write in prose
I am convinced that I would lose.
My rhyming capability
reducing my ability.
To write my words spontaneously.
I donít expect you to agree.
Although I am compelled to write.
Youíre free to exercise your right
To read or not as you choose to.
Though I confess I hope you do.
I know I canít please everyone.
That is something that canít be done
By any writer though they try
A truth no writer can deny.
Your comments are of interest
they spur me on to do my best.
We can agree to disagree
on which is best quite easily.
A poet must choose poetry.
But other writers are quite free.
to share their thoughts written in prose
Because they choose to I suppose.
If you should doubt my competence.
I promise not to take offence.
You are entitled to your view
Please remember I am too
