I am not normally that guy, but...
That was aweful. Really.
As an emcee, I feel qualified to jump in here. What type of stanza were you looking for? The traditional a-b a-b, or otherwise? I feel like I took my rhyming ability to the next level when I started to read the romantic period of poetry.
I'm not saying it's great, but I respect the format. I get the sense that, perhaps, you might not be all that familiar with traditional poetry.
Peace to the OP.
"I establish parameters, through iambic pentameter."
I had heard a quote from that poem many years ago. For some reason it came to mind, and through the power of the internet I found it. Posted it purely because of the subject matter.
It's not about form. I am a fan of Poetry and familiar with many poetry styles. The writing is just bad IMO.
It's like when Twain or Shakespeare have a character write a poem in their work and it is pourposefully bad. That's how I see this.

Curiously, I like words, rhymes and puns but poetry has never done it for me.
Thank you. It wasn't meant to be anything greater.
While we’re on poetry, I want to segway into literature a little.... I’m a huge Steinbeck fan, Cannery Row being my favorite book. This poem brings to mind a Mac, Eddie, and the rest of the boys at the Palace Flophouse.
It lost me for a bit, but the last few lines were kinda dope. Good on them for mentioning nut brown ale in the poem!
I like it. Expressing such deep thoughts with a few well-chosen words is a true art form. As far as the construction goes, it reminds me a great deal of the hymn "Love Unknown." It flows smoothly despite the terse phrasing. Besides, it describes perfectly what I am doing right now. (Except for the cigar.)
De gustibus and all that.
Segue, not Segway.
That was so bad, it hurt my soul when I read it.
I thought one was required to relinquish ones soul when one accepts a position in your field?

I don't claim the skill of a Poe or a Thackeray
But I can tell you for certain that poem was hackery.
