When Is a Poem Not a Poem?

The verse inside my head 
Is hidden from my brain.
I'd like to write some poetry,
But think I'll just refrain.
Rather I'll just jot these words
Before they start to wane.
Easier than rhyming words
Is yankin' yer all's chain.

Yer all's? Southern Minnesota?

Well, it's not common usage 'round about these parts, but it is language so I'll use it! Perhaps I'll channel my inner Frances McDormand later this week and write something with a more Scandinavian flare.
