Flat Pack Poem

If poems came in flat packs

You’d empty out the parts

And try to figure what went where

And how it ought to look.

You’d have a stack of words to sort

Some rhymes to give a shape

A structure and a rhyme scheme

A unifying thought.

You’d piece it all together

Once you’d got the gist

But someone else created it

The credit would be his.
