Use a New Form (Margerinesoar Noir)

Let us not abuse a form of our own.
A poet pursues truth with words on loan.
It should not confuse, lest poets disown.

Let us not abuse a form of our own.
Make pattern amuse, and not make folks groan.

Write of lover’s coos, or of Fred Flintstone,
or paying our dues for chances we’ve blown,
of evil in pews, or wild oats we’ve sown.

Whatever your muse drops into your zone–
Remember to choose your own words alone.

A poet pursues truth with words on loan.
Make pattern amuse, and not make folks groan.
If words can bemuse then we’ll not bemoan
the efforts we use to make it our own.
