Can you explain more clearly what your poetry requires beyond the
plain-text formatting of ```...``` sections?  The only thing I can think of
is that it will appear in a monowidth font.

Enviroments. We already have one: plain text. We could have something like
> ```
> roses are red
> this     preserved space is not blue
> so poetry you can do
> ```

The spaces should be preserved already because of the ```.

O beautiful for patriot's dream that sees beyond the years
Thine alabaster cities gleam undimmed by human tears!
America! America!  God mend thine every flaw,
Confirm thy soul in self-control, thy liberty in law!
        --one of the verses not usually taught in U.S. schools
