The Saddest Part of Verse

The saddest part of verse
Reliance on language
Forces poets terse
A need to temporarily engage

With timing
A phony beat
Against living
Ultimate timeless retreat

But so much information
A bard must squash
Via muted intonation
As compacted temporal trash

Random information
Sweetens linguistically
Verbal versification
Of polyglot humanity
