NaPoWriMo – Thoughts on Modern Poetry

Poetry and rhymes are things
That are decreasing in popularity over the years.
For some reason, rhythm and imagery
And poetry are things no one wants to hear.

Instead, rapping has taken over,
But in my opinion, it doesn’t quite cut it.
Rap is basically fast poetry,
But most rappers use swear words to rhyme with “bit”?

Also, fast tempos mean the poetry is ignored,
Could poetry become elitist?
Not if more people notice it,
Maybe visit more spoken word artists?
