Forget your Hickory-Dickory-Dock
You must login to vote
and comparisons to a summerís day.
Your inner narcissist should run amok
and put your nihilism on display.
Speak anachronisticílly, use a brogue --
sure reenact events youíve never known --
poems about the Civil War are vogue --
just Wiki it, and then make it your own,
break up the lines
within a sentence then
donít forget to
jambment, and if you must, slant rhymes
only, or an editor
wonít love you.
Poetry today is just prose without
the clarity of verbal sauerkraut.
The quickest way for me to learn something new is to first understand why I'd like to learn it.
