Anyone Can Pen Rhyme

It is true what is said anyone can pen rhyme
But the works of the true poets do live on in time
And the twenty first century literary critics the praises of the modern poets sing
It does seem that blank verse is now the in thing
And though everyone needed in the wordsmith trade
It is true about poets they are born not made
True poets like true playwrights and true novelists with words have a way
They were born to be writers to know of wealth and fame one day
Back in the mid fifties when i was a boy
Reading the poems of the rhyme poets i used to enjoy
But rhyme nowadays does seem a thing of the past
Suppose in life few things are born for to last
And though in it for me no fame or financial gain
The rhyming addiction with me does remain.
