Dead End or Highway

by John Long   Jun 10, 2007


The Rhyme.
Sometimes a crime, that
Pushes you into a dark alley
And beats you.

The Rhyme.
Sometimes sublime,
Makes you look under rocks
Ask why and who?

Blank verse,
Sometimes a curse,
Leads you round in circles,
Defeats you squarely.

Blank verse,
You are the driver, yours is the taxi,
Choose any road,
From Bangladesh to Biloxi.

    Artists force you to look at yourself, contemplate your life.
    This is really beautifully written.
    Well done.

    How poignant. 'twas a very fine piece, and I liked how you illustrated a rhymed poetry to a dead end as well as a blank/free verse to a highway. I see where you're coming from with these thoughts.
    all the best and take care.
