My best poem ever!
If you can find anything wrong with this, tell me! It’s purrfect!!!!!
I wrote a little poem once
and put it on the web.
Some people said they liked it
so I got quite a thrill.
But then some clever person
said I couldn’t rhyme.
I didn’t give an answer
’cos I couldn’t spare the effort.
I’m satisfied with tum-te-tum
I haven’t studied metre.
But I can hear exactly when it’s right
I guess I just have a natural talent for it.
I haven’t even tried to do
enjambment, or a ‘form’.
I don’t know all the ins and outs
or what should be the norm.
And then I sit and ponder hard
with furrows in my brow:
I need a word to go here
– should I use ‘enow’?
I haven’t time for fancy words
or literal illusions.
If I try, then my brain hurts
and I’m all in confusion.
I’m just a simple ditty-smith,
and happy to be so.
So all you pundits bugger off!
’cos I don’t want to know.
If ignorance is bliss, then I’m
as blissful as can be.
I’m full of pep and vim and verbs
and happy to be me.
HaHaHa! Me to a tee I guess. In all seriousness, there are many who don’t care, don’t want to change. I never comment, seldom read their work. I certainly wouldn’t get into arguments with them.
And many who just don’t know because they’ve never been told how to do it…
A very acerbic poem cloaked in humour. I loved the second stanza. 🙂 yes and the third…
Yes, the third contains the most important lesson. Thank you.
Hehe, some of my best are written like this ;-)) Good fun tongue in Cheek write. Sue.
Sadly, sometimes it’s all too true, which irks me. I really want to see people get it right – it’s not rocket science.
Love this, John! It’s all a learning curve, really. Unfortunately some don’t want to learn
Yes, but that’s their privilege provided they keep it to themselves.
Anyway, thanks for the comment.
