I disagree. I feel that spoken word is especially powerful usually. Even more so if the speaker is trained or has a special connection with the work. I don't think it needs rhymes and sometimes that takes away from the seriousness of the work. Just look at some songs and nursery rhymes with dark messages that are overlooked.

Also, as an audioable learner myself I feel that it stands out more in my mind.

Here's some good spoken word:

I wish you didn't ban yourself,
It was a stupid mistake I knew,
Repeatedly hurting his health,
Until the last card he drew,

But he will be back again,
As different as he is many,
The king and his men slain,
Built on sandlots good as any

i love sunny days
i am happy and gay.

i love to water the plants
but not to dry up the pants.

the sun is above us
and its rays are crushing us.

we love to drink coke
by sharing a joke.

we love the sunny day.
i am happy and gay.
