Yes, I agree.. It can be done, but it's considered tacky.
I think this link sums it up the best:
Suzy, I love your crit message
I can't say, this is a poem. Try to envision these 6 words strung together on a page, in a sea of white.
The reader would be expecting something profound. This is little more than a cliched ditty. If I took your
three posts and put them togeter like below, I might have a poem. It's sick humor and clumsy, but a poem.
Taken all my years
To grasp life
Along with fear
The taste of strife
Tired of tears
At last I laugh
Love is desire
Lost in admire
We all linger to feed from the soil
Except for the children that starve
Seed our world of turmoil
Save Eden, sow a garden
