My poetry form - what form are you?

Thanks to WIP for the idea.

I am heroic couplets; most precise
And fond of order. Planned and structured. Nice.
I know, of course, just what I want; I know,
As well, what I will do to make it so.
This doesn't mean that I attempt to shun
Excitement, entertainment, pleasure, fun;
But they must keep their place, like all the rest;
They might be good, but ordered life is best.
What Poetry Form Are You?

This little computer-generated verse actually reveals a lot about who I am. I am a lifelong professional musician by night and consultant by day. I am an inveterate writer of prose and poetry; my screen name is "RunAwayImagination." Music and words are very orderly - anything but random or disorderly. I pay a lot of attention to the order and structure in society and in the larger world. I make my living in the world of ideas, words and numbers. The world of music and the arts has its own structure. The dynamics of melody, rhythm and chord changes create power, which is one way in which I understand the importance of music and art in human culture.

I can verify that Heroic Couplets definitely describes RunawayImagination to a T. :) I have always told him he is my knight in shining armour. :) Plus, he's CUTE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
