Poetry is a form of literature using imaginative and creative words in a compressed form to express ideas.
There are two basic forms of poetry. One form is blank verse while the other follows a fixed or standard format. Two examples of the latter are Haiku and Limericks. Haiku are three lined unrhymed poems while limericks are five lined rhymed poems of a humorous nature. Terse Verse poems follow a standard 16 lines of one syllable, also in a humorous style.
Themes of Terse Verse are observations of everyday life and comments on American lifestyles and behavior. Terse Verse uses puns and wordplay to give readers a different viewpoint of familiar situations. It is difficult to group these poems into specific categories since there are a wide variety of topics. Each poem must be read and enjoyed on its own merits.
In brief, Terse Verse is a form of poetry which reduces ideas to the fewest words to deliver different points of view and bring a smile to the reader.
