Delusions of Grandeur The Poet's Lament - by Bob Atkinson

Delusions of Grandeur
The Poet's Lament
(c)2013 Bob Atkinson

exists in some small minds
their open sense of expression
rates more worthless than a dime

ah, here we have such nonsense
those word simpletons of late
who follow down a winding path
and fail to cerebrate

total lack of purpose
gets under my thin skin
works to send a message
to which I must display chagrin

teaching of incoherent thoughts
which lie not in the proper mood
gives nothing to function of Poetry
shallow intent does not us move

reason for my irritation
on this subject now addressed
we have a distortion of a genre'
which creates a quagmire mess

nobody reads their input
nobody likes their stuff
until the Poetry Establishment
changes gears
we'll tend to lose our lunch
