Advice to a skateboarding actor

So if you want to write in better verse
With Pentads flowing from your mental pen
Avoiding any urge to make a rhyme
Look out for rhythms everywhere you go.
Not just in theatre. As you skateboard past
Shops, hoardings, buildings, bridges, Ads
Etc. Later, pause. There’s a good reason
To spring a different rhythm. It is OK.
Cunning Will broke up the ‘dum ti dum’
For effect. To affect. To attract. To amuse. To disturb.
Although deep in the lines the DNA
Preserves intact that spinal rule of five.
