To impress by expressing yourself can be tough
Using ballads and poems is certainly rough.
There are those for whom prose can do wonderful things,
While a courtly love sonnet can be fit for kings.
Simple rhymes can at times be quite lovely, it's true,
While I've found that a round cheers me up when I'm blue.
How I long for a song that relates a good tale,
And an epic can be of magnificent scale,
While a pretty sea ditty or nautical chant
Can be great fun at parties, I surely will grant.
If you test for the best, though, I simply must say
Clearly nothing compares with a really good lay.
p.s. It's a kind a' epic poem, dammit! Read a book!
