THE “ELITIST” POET

THE “ELITIST” POET

(An opinion piece)

He feels so very troubled

When “poets” come out to play…

Labeling work a certain style

And throwing the rules away!

Ten-to-twelve verses

Are not your normal haiku…

Limericks done however one wants

Are “fun” but really P-U.

Neither of these have more than one verse,

And rhythms  very exact…

The learning curves really aren’t that steep

To torture us with your slack!
