To Rhyme Or Not To Rhyme

My English teacher Dave

For whom I sometimes behaved

Said “poetry does not need to rhyme”.

If I met him today

“Dave”, I would say

“You took all my fun away.

Day after day

I let you lead me astray

Away from the rhythm,

Away from the sway”.

I have a feeling he’d say

“I think you’ve just proved my point”.
