So in my plot a bunch of teens in a small village are hanging out. They play instruments (there's no electricity). I want to write a short verse, a song one of them writes about the plight they feel, but everything I try sounds dorky. Are there any quick rules for song lyrics, like "show don't tell" is a rule for writing? Anything you might advise a new writer when it comes to song lyrics or poetry rather than story fiction? Thanks.
