Can any versifier help but being  
a tad bit analytic      
diagnostic      
forensic        
       
Supplanting sterile knowledge      
with more than downy feeling      
or a frosty understanding      
with something less remanding        
       
Able to coyly reveal        
what it pretends to conceal      
within the sage subterfuge        
of lulling rhyme and meter        
       
Lifting itself high      
above bric-a-brac prose      
not just flaunting what it knows      
with itty bitty pretty words      
       
Jaunting thus forever free        
artsy in her rightly lobe      
a more gentle loving globe      
where logic dare never tromp
