SPOKEN WORD vs POETRY (a lovely poetic piece)

 mic - wordup411
They say,
Spoken word is poetry.
I say,
Try coke and pepsi
For one lives for the stage,
Rhythms and flowetry,
The other lives in the page,
Methaphors and imagery.
They say,
Spoken word is poetry,
I say,
A sea is not its tributary.
One is direct and vivid,
talkative and expressive.
The other is secretive,
Says more with few words.
They say,
Spoken word is poetry,
I say,
Use omelettes to cook egusi.
One is superficial and flashy
Seeking to capture your eyes.
The other is an endless abyss
An emptiness that fills the heart
They say
spoken word is poetry,
I say,
Compare silk and cotton.
One is a bride,
Without jewels
The other a maiden,
With a string of pearls.
They say,
Spoken word is poetry
I say,
Marriage is not wedding
For one,
The tongue is a pen,
For the other
The pen is also the tongue
They say,
Spoken word is poetry.
I say,
A War song is not music.
