Each poetic submission

be a simple decision
not a nasty collision
with the free-versing vision.
If there is superstition
or a quick apparition
you must send a petition.
Pay attention to metre
and not Sally or Peter
but as soon as you teeter
on the much hated ledge
you can write down your pledge
and thus drive a sharp wedge
between you and the edge,
but there are no strict rules
for the poets and fools
you don’t write for the schools
but when somebody drools
over what you have written
and he’s totally smitten
you can purr like a kitten
or a lover just bitten
it will make all your days
and you need no more praise.
