actually smiled laughed
when a ghost critic voted
my poem 'Simplest Purest

Purposes Of Art' a 1
some cannot realize
beauty in simplicity

inherent in simple thought
to perceive develop ability
to appreciate simple concepts...

thus in pity I swift wrote
a pleasant pure poem about it
'What Flows In Loving Souls'

funny how often
a poem I really like
a critic will not

no need to like
an individual poem
or a specific poet;

lovers of poetry
follow those they likeith
best or lovith best;

if I cooked you a nice steak
with variety veg you do not
either have to like it or eat it...

rather you might leave the meat
choose the veg being a vegetarian?
or prefer some sausage eggs chips

How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
