About the trout

Most of the time

Most of the time Poetry that doesn't rhyme

Most of the time Poetry that doesn't rhyme Is just badly written prose

Most of the time Poetry that doesn't rhyme Is just badly written prose Sure, some of the time

Most of the time Poetry that doesn't rhyme Is just badly written prose Sure, some of the time It's sublime

Most of the time Poetry that doesn't rhyme Is just badly written prose Sure, some of the time It's sublime Against the odds, it flows

But seek an easy rhythm

But seek an easy rhythm Verse that rolls right off the tongue

But seek an easy rhythm Verse that rolls right off the tongue Rhyming is the way to go

But seek an easy rhythm Verse that rolls right off the tongue Rhyming is the way to go A pendulum that's swung

Sure you may have to compromise

Sure you may have to compromise On the placement of a word

Sure you may have to compromise On the placement of a word But to deny its intrinsic beat

Sure you may have to compromise On the placement of a word But to deny its intrinsic beat Is really quite absurd

So let's admit we like it

So let's admit we like it Let's stop fannying about

So let's admit we like it Let's stop fannying about Let's all rhyme till the cows come home

So let's admit we like it Let's stop fannying about Let's all rhyme till the cows come home And end on a word like 'trout'
