On the subject of ‘free verse’ type music, how could I forget to mention Katie Melua?
There are nine million bicycles in Beijing
That’s fact, It’s a thing we can’t deny
Like the fact that I will love you till I die
It’s sort of displaying parallelism too – the Old Testament poetic metric of reinforcing an idea by either expressing it in another way, or constrasting it with it’s opposite. For instance, Psalm 2 has
Now therefore be wise, O kings;
Be prudent, you judges of the earth
or Psalm 37
The wicked borrow and do not repay,
but the righteous are generous in giving.
