(2/2) Rhyme Schemers

There were once 4 poets,

So strong, so proud.

Entering a contest, but not to please the crowd.

They all loved poetry for what it was

The form, the air the beauty that it brought to the world.

Head to head they faced

In front of judges, other contestants and fans of all.

The judges did their best to pit them against,

To cause fighting and dissension amongst them.

But the harder they pushed, the tighter they pulled

The closer the poets became.

With pens as swords and hearts as shields.

They stood back to back.

As judges and the fans picked them off one by one.

They didn’t cry or moan as ones knees buckled and fell to the floor.

But they used the loss of their friends

To strengthen their poetry all the more.

As one by one contestants fell

The four they still stood strong.

And one by one they fell by judge

But the contest still went on.

Until at last one still stood

One of those original four.

But the 3 stood back and still did clap

For their friend who won it all.

And though the fight was over

One had one and the rest had not

They still stood strong with pens as swords.
