Nope, too close to being grammatically correct to qualify as free verse.
I once sold Blank Verse for all occasions at the reasonable rate of $500 a page. Regrettably, the majority of my customers didn’t seem to know what blank means: eventually they ran me out of town on a rail, after their apparent yet inexplicable surprise when they found their pages were—just as I had described to them—blank. I don’t understand how I can make a living on poetry when the public needs to be tutored in the meanings of basic words.
He composes verse at very reasonable rates and then he gives them away for free – admirable, but not the best business plan!
I just can’t get the vision out of my head of a man named, “Wobble”, walking around on a roof thirty feet off the ground – hopefully he sticks to flat roofs – or does this guy have perfect pitch, too?
Reasonable rates? I thought the verse was free.
