Is It Required?

Must it always rhyme, must it fit like a dime,

The single red points that multiply my two sense by five,

Will the meter bounce poetically, or will it fall flat on its face?

Given the time of a life, my strife can run a steady pace.


The sounds of symmetry, the lines of four,

Are they really required to stay in step?

Is a constant rhythm actually adored?


Must there always be a proposition squeezed between the lines,

Or a preposition linking a subject to another’s recent find?

Is it actually required to have some purpose in mind?
