Shamloo

Don’t need fancy words to communicate
engaging thoughts and ideas
Don’t need rhyming to┬ácall it poetry

Poetry has been released from the cage of tradition
And is flying in the atmosphere of freedom

On the wings of imagery and metaphor
Through words that are understood by all
Poetry is leaving the land of the elite
And entering the world of ‘every man’
