				writing poetry is easy
				all you have to do is:
				type some random words
				use no capital letters
optionally, have one line that is far longer (or shorter) than the others for no reason
				and, most importantly:
				ensure nothing rhymes.

Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer's lease hath all too short a date.
    
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimmed;
And every fair from fair sometimes declines,
By chance, or nature's changing course, untrimmed.
    
But thy eternal summer shall not fade,
Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow’st;
Nor shall Death brag thou wander’st in his shade
When in eternal lines to time thou grow’st:
    
So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,
So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.
