The Rubaiyat poetry form for dVerse Poets Pub.
He was the man they loved to hate
For reasons one can’t clearly state.
A lonely man without a friend,
It seemed like much too cruel a fate.
A wealthy man who dared not spend
This one rule he would not bend
One day he met a girl named Kate
And fell in love end over end
She liked him too, and could not wait
For him to ask her for a date
And so it went until the day
He found out Kate was jail-bait.
Too young was she to have a man
All he could say was damn, damn, damn.
They kissed goodbye and parted ways
But not before they hatched a plan.
One rainy night they ran away
Together always, night and day
He spent his money, wild and free
It’s true, their love was meant to be.
