You are Free Verse (v1)

flow cat, the scat is in the waves
and the dames are riding
checkered yellow cars
yearning for a fare;
but what's fair when your
rhythm's unmetered and your
rhyme is unnecessary,
just occasionally there?

Cut and paste this on your livejournal or
send it to your friends! :)

Try the test again?

While Free Verse does not rely on the conventional use of meter or rhyme, at the core its words flow in an irregular rhythmic cadence. Subject matter, effect, and tone vary greatly across the style.

The French poets of the late nineteenth century revolted against the tyranny of strict versification and established the Verse libre movement.
