Ah, yeah, I've definitely got the Block, does it show?

Free Verse to the tune of "Free Ride"

The metre is hard and synonyms few,
There's no rhyme for "orange," so what can you do?
Although all your efforts have slowed to a crawl,
Don't give in to free verse, it's not verse at all.

Come on and skip the free verse (Free verse!)
No structure only makes it worse,
Come on and skip the free verse!

All over the Web sites, the poetry's the same,
Most of it is "free verse," and most of it's lame.
You say e.e. cumming wrote free verse full-time,
But even ol' cumming could spin a mean rhyme, so...

Come on and skip the free verse (Free verse!)
No structure only makes it worse,
Come on and skip the free verse!

Come on and skip the free verse! (Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah...)
Come on and skip the free verse! (Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah...)
Come on and skip the free verse! (Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah...)
Come on and skip the free verse! (Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah...)

Free Ride

The mountain is high, the valley is low,
And you're confused on which to go,
So I've come here to give you a hand,
And lead you into the promised land.

Come on and take a free ride
(Free ride!)
Come on and take it by my side,
Come on and take a free ride!

All over the country I've seen it the same,
Nobody's winning at this type of game,
We gotta do better, it's time to begin,
You know all the answers
Must come from within. So...

Come on and take a free ride
(Free ride!)
Come on and take it by my side,
Come on and take a free ride!

Come on and take a free ride!
(Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah...)
Come on and take a free ride!
(Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah...)
Come on and take a free ride!
(Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah...)
Come on and take a free ride!
(Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah...)
