Poetry
"Poetry is not an expression of the party line. It's that time of night, lying in bed, thinking what you really think, making the private world public, that's what the poet does."

Pretty words.

No, really. That's what poetry is. Sometimes it rhymes, sometimes there are more line breaks than usual. All you really need to make a poem, though, is to put it together so it sounds good, or at least sounds the way you want it to sound. It is the favored form of revolutionaries and queens, pretentious professors and angsty teens.

Poetry is one of the oldest kinds of literature, and many of the earliest tales from civilizations across the world are in some sort of poetic form.
