I accept your challenge and will open my argument by saying... what is so useful about rhyming words in lieu of a normal story.

Poems are the fields of the cultivated and the accomplished.

They have no use in anything, but entertainment. When in history has anyone said, "I have been saved by a poem' or "I plowed my fields with such good poems". So what is the purpose of such literature.

Poems, especially in asian languages represent the summum of perfection. It captivates the heart.Of course if thsese are words you cannot plough fields!!! (HA HA HA). I will ask you , which is better? Good words or bad words? If it is good words, good poems are a series of them.....

To be offensive, but this is the twenty first century... poems are useless. The peak of perfection is who can have the highest score on Flappy Bird. Yep, the bar has lowered... ... ... definitely lowered. Good debate and just so you know I am a poet.
