The Weight of My Own Self Importance

The Weight of My Own Self Importance

How pretentious
the poet’s pen is,
nattering nonsense
cobbled and collated
into couplets and quatrains.

The mysteries of life
explained; I am, in iamb.
A lot of alliteration;
love’s loss lamented
line by line.

Yellow pad in hand
we toil and tarry ‘til
the world weeps
in wonderment
at what we’ve written.

As any poet not worth his salt will tell you, it's lonely at the top.

this is good...made me smile - I have one I posted recently venting about fricking free verse. I may send it to funnypoets.com just for sh**s and grins :)
