The Algorhythm Method

Today's poem has been adversely affected

By current circumstances

It was to be a much longer and adventurous poem

But has been edited to much less than its original vision

Not only that

but the A B A B rhyme scheme

That was to be deployed

Has now been rearranged imperceptibly

Apparently, there is nothing to be done

There are no Poetry Police

No Serious Rhyme Squad

Who can take this matter up

It would seem that poetic licence has been revoked

And instead, there is this

Where whatever ending or punchline was in mind

has been withdrawn, prematurely

Thanks to the algorhythm method
