Well adjusted, and amended analytically strung.
Decisively disciplined, deliberately done.
Fixed in its framework, effective, efficient.
Purposely planed, it’s precise and proficient.
Orderly, organized… Systematically smart.
Assessed in acquiring, aspiring art.
Metrical, lyrical, rhythmical, epical.
Dramatic, epodic, dactylic, idyllic.
Artistic, linguistic, simplistic, logistic.
Can your mind keep up this quick?
Stop and think if you’ve missed it!
It’s marvelously measured, defined and meticulous;
When poised in position, so refined it’s ridiculous.
The regularly regularized rhythm is rugged.
The layout is logic. My method… Methodic!

Thank you R.H. Peat for taking the time to read my work. I don't know much about you or your work, but not all poetry is written about being alive or the human condition, and if they all were, then it wouldn't be every exciting to read. The point of this piece it just to try and show the techniques and figures a poet may use to make his work more interesting. Try looking up alliteration, apostrophe, assonance, metaphor, simile, hyperbole consonance, full rhyme, off rhyme, maybe this might help you understand the art of poetry a little better. Sorry you didn't like, but that's OK.
A really dull poem written about itself that really doesn't say much about being alive or the human condition at all. Boring to say the least. a poet friend// RH Peat
