Arrogance of a Poet


Reading, reading, reading aloud,
Out to an audience or a large crowd,

A lovely poem, simple like this,
Rhyming couplets, O what a bliss,

Next a succulent simile,
Like this, like that or just like me.

Alliteration, simile all in one,
The Sun looked down, thinking well done!

Woah, personification, the touch of skill
But ofcourse, I can still

Go further and further with these thoughts,
Enjambment used, eat my shorts!

My skill unmatched, the audience applaud,
Score,10/10, definitely assured.

But still this skill was not enough,
They believed my poem was still a rough

Copy or a draft, not the final one,
A poem to impress, that could have won.

And so I wander back, like a whale
To feed my young poems a treacherous tale,

To which they will, rebel and fight
For why did that poem not set alight

The crowd with all its great talent,
But I will not, never, relent

In making you poems walk into fame,
And there goes my poetic technique again...

    wow
    surely I think your this poem will walk in high fame
    Coz your poetic technique is unique like a game,
    it was like making a wild lion tame
    even if all are to say shame shame shame
    good poem
    surely a tenner from me

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
