What is a Poem, the PSA.

Q. Oh what sayeth the Lord(ess)? What might a poem be?
Might it be prose yet sweeter, with rhyme and strict meter?
Might it be words upon paper, shaped like a tree?
Might it alliterate like maybe pickles 'n peter?
Might it assonate like bats and cravats?
Might she personify and curtsy and say "Hi?"
Oh Lord(ess) please hear our pleas for clarity
We can't stand all this mystery

A. Stop it. And your rhythm's off anyway, you twit.
