Cannot Say I Care Much

Cannot say i care much of what the literary dons have to say
Of the women and men of rhyme of today
To them poets do not write in rhythm and rhyme
And such stuff does belong to another time

To them poets must write in language that is akin to prose
We all have our opinions one must suppose
But the opinions of the literary critics and literary dons seems to be those that does count
And the opinions of all others on poetry to nothing seems to amount

Long deceased poets such as Masefield and Burns and Mangan and Clare
And Service and Lawson to me seem beyond compare
But they seem out of fashion in the Literary World of today
The changes keep happening as some like to say

Since by people of literary degrees the death of rhyme hurried on
The days of the rhymer in the forever gone
But modern poetry does nothing for me
Though many with such thinking would disagree.
