The Emperor Has No Clothes - by Bob Atkinson

The Emperor Has No Clothes
(c)2013 Bob Atkinson
bright with pomp, circumstance
he stands proud on center stage
apparently anointed king of words
by the queen's simplistic charade

credentials stuffed in a corner
to tell all of his talents strong
what's missing?
semblance of understanding thought

why and where it comes from
what and who creates
that magical transformation
of a mind's internal state

as emotional content of literature
poetry's power does equate
to bombs and bullets of weak minded
those so thoroughly debased

beginning now we'll utilize
all social tools at our command
and begin to plant that growing seed
that produces worthwhile man
