Poetry & Nonsense

Intro
It's my belief that the most important things in life can be explained very simply.  If you can't explain it in a few words, you probably don't understand it that well.  The longer a person's explanation gets, the more likely it is to be inaccurate.  Ask a liar what happened, and you will get a long story or no story at all.  The ultimate truth is simple (and typically funny, at the expense of those hiding it).  Anyone who tells you "it's not that simple" should be thoroughly deposed, with witnesses.  It almost certainly is "that simple."

Poetry & Nonsense
It's my opinion
That poetry
Should make sense

To the writer
And to the reader
Otherwise
It's not poetry
It's nonsense
If it can't be explained
Very simply
It's nonsense
