Monday Poetry Prompt: Analytical

graphs-and-mouse-1240089-639x481.jpgRoger Hodgson of Supertramp wrote The Logical Song so let’s write an analytical poem this week. It seems rather unpoetic, doesn’t it? Consider that on definition of analysis is  “the separation of a whole into its constituents for examination and interpretation”. Isn’t that also one definition of poetry?

I’ll be posting my analytical poem to my blog later today.
