Vertical Verse is rare indeed
Because it's difficult to read
And difficult to write because
Of Isaac Newton's physics laws.

Gravity is not a friend
To words stretched on each other's end
Because unless they're arrow-straight
They topple and disintegrate.

Attributes as bad as these
Can cause an author's ink to freeze
So, despite that I'm their mother
I'm not fathering another.

Edlock Hart

P.S.
It's only incentive
Was being inventive,
And to be the first,
The best, and the versed
