MFA, CW - by Bob Atkinson

MFA, CW
(c)2013 Bob Atkinson
she teaches masters program
doesn't know how to write
the, the, the's abound in
her legacy, so hackneyed, trite

she gets accolades abundant
from those who do not know
how words affect the mind
how our life force flows

wake up, smell common thoughts
darned establishment of note
tell all how you devised this
promotion of words mundane

how you took our poetry
to a lower level of performance
how you left emotion and
ideas out of your chattered notions

no explanation of history
art, science or deeds well performed
no telling stories true in form
you've poetry, by yourself, undone
