My brilliant and dear friend Rob wrote a blog entry touching on his lack of preference for poetry that doesn't rhyme. His logic was that if Dr. Seuss could make everything rhyme, anyone should be able to! :) His wife pointed out to him that Dr. Seuss made up words. :)
I left him a fun comment that I thought I'd share with you guys.
I share your opinions too,
Though people rarely think
To rhyme the way dear Seuss would do
Of chairs and kitchen sinks
But years of English schooling shows
Though I might not agree
Writers can be right, sans prose...
