What could be worse?
Makes one curse.
The accused was heard to say,
in a declamatory sort of way,
some poems and verse, without
a licence for word or play.
A backing by guitar or drum,
banged or strummed,
might be a musical performance
and keep officials shtumm.
Compared to music is verse more inflammable?
Or will it cause riots or a crowd uncontrollable?
Surely even an apparatchik can see
that verse and rhyme must be allowable.
Petty? Of course not, who would think such a thing? After all rules is rules.
