Mad Poetry

by the number
in a chaos of kids
and life and news
and of course cats
seems impossible.
Wouldn’t it be great
to poem by number--
metaphor here,
enjambment over there,
or fill-in-the-blank
like Mad Libs
(no adjectives)
and voilà!
Your point is made,
beautifully expressed.
All done, well done, finis.
