I Never Liked Poetry

I never liked poetry

I never understood what it meant

There was too much metaphor

Without any intent


I never liked poetry

Music was my medium

At least most songs rhymed

And did not fill me with tedium


I never liked poetry

Until I read my lyrics aloud

The cadence, rhythm, meter, flow,

said, "You are a poet now."
