Defending the title

Poem from The Language of Cat and other poems by Rachel Rooney

I am the word juggler.
I juggle the words
like swords.
I slice sense
with poetic license.

I am the letter mover
the metre lover.
Like rhyme
I time this
for poetic justice.

I am the brain rattler.
Shaking ideas
like dice.
A notion
in poetic motion.

I am the verse making
rule bending defender.
Beginner
and ender.
I am the champion.

From The Language of Cat
