Amusing Personally, I have no use for poetry that doesn't rhyme. Poetry that does rhyme, however, is a different matter. Check out this bit of light verse that I found over at The Leiter Reports. Here's a sample:

Sound Science"

Robert Hanrott
Washington, D.C.

Three hundred years of Western science
Were intended to reduce reliance
On charlatans and superstition
Improving knowledge, health, nutrition.
Humans were expected to progress
Out of an obscurantist mess,
And, alchemy and ignorance spent,
Proceed to their enlightenment,
At a steady but increasing rate.
Our progress seemed inviolate.
