Let’s suppose that we have shoes

I'm a poet 

Not a mechanic

If the rhyme breaks down

Should I panic?

 

For each syllable stretch

And stumbling scan

Do I search for another

Or act like a man

 

Must the purpose I scribe

Be for passing a test

Or maybe some mention

Of a tale with some zest

 

I think the audience tell 

If they like it or not
