The Radical Poet

Post by Dennis N O'Brien » Mon Apr 23, 2012 6:37 am

The Radical Poet

He writes such crazy verses every day;
He’s post-post-post-post modernist I’d say.
With lines about reality and life;
Not gloom and doom and abstract inner strife.
It’s not left wing, it’s structured and what’s worse,
He’s not supported by the public purse.
He writes in what he calls a metered time;
He even has the cheek to make it rhyme.
It’s said his verse the sane can understand;
Such criminal behaviour must be banned.
This rebel’s works must be brought to an end,
Before this sort of thing becomes a trend.

I may not always succeed in making a difference, but I will go to my grave knowing I at least tried.

Oh I think there might be quite a few possible candidates close by Maureen. ;)

And you can change the "he" to a "she" if you wish.

Too late mate to stop the trend
one can't be sure if it will ever end.
