Prompt: Is rap a form of poetry? Why or why not? Support your answer with evidence.
I think that rap is a form of poetry because both of them have a repeated rhythm. Plus, often in poetry and rap the word of the last stanza rhymes with another word that’s the last one in a stanza. Rap to me is like a more upbeat version of poetry. The writing styles of both are very similar. They also both have a rhythm patterns. For example, a pattern for rap and poetry could be ABAB form. This means that the ending word of both A sentences will rhyme, and the ending word of both B sentences will rhyme. Some poems have actually been turned into rap songs. On this website is a list of raps that were first poems.
