Well... I dont know how I feel about that, because when I read song lyrics it may as well be a poem, and most poems can be turned into songs, expecially if they are short rhyming cuplets and stanzas, however personally I cannot write good songs at all. I am a pretty good poet, but songs evade my talent I suppose. Maybe its because I dont play an instrument, but I would love to write songs because I love to sing. If songs and poetry are the same things then would it not mean every songwriter can write great poetry and vis-versa? Because I find this to be untrue. The other difference is that songs make very "corny" poetry in many cases, poetry has to have more of a classic flow than alot of songs, just my opinion though.
