The day the poems stopped rhyming

Something happened on that day; the day the poems stopped rhyming.
Analytically, one could argue that the change was down to timing.
That the poet, when depressed–
Even though they tried their best–
Could not find that joy, that zest.
Their witty wordy prowess
On the day the poems stopped rhyming.

On the day the poems stopped rhyming, with further speculation,
One could argue that that issue was just one of motivation.
That, although it is preferred,
Sometimes the perfect word
When left unrhymed is less absurd;
More profound and better heard
On the day the poems stopped rhyming.

Of the day the poems stopped rhyming, in conclusion and summation:
The culmination, exposition and explanation
For that poetic aberration.
The reason rhymes were rationed?
Depression? Motivation?
Likely a combination
On the day the poems stopped rhyming.
