tried to write a stanza.
But he couldn't make it rhyme.
And we all know not rhyming's a crime,
at least in some circles.
So instead he took to writing the story of his life
including all the bad bits
and the sad bits.
Threw in all his failures and his fears
accumulated over many years.
And in the breaking of his heart
found more poetry there
than in a thousand rhyming couplets.
