The Pointless Verse


Languishing at the desk under a dreadful curse,
Just take me away now in the back of a hearse!
Encumbered with rage
I put pen to page
And make mindless scribbles instead…
In a violent scrawl
Of nothing decent at all;
I describe the scene of my head.
But like a stubborn trout
The words won’t come out
And the harder one tries it only gets worse.
Until one is left with something like
This pointless little verse…

    Good to know Mike! My doctrine is: Written for the common man, to understand and treasure...not for dry analysis, but rather simple leisure! I'm glad I could give you a smile. Thanks for reading my work. (Report) Reply

    Its existence is its point, although it is also blunt and that too could be a definition of pointless. (Report) Reply
