How So Humdrum...

Being A Nonpartisan Author

One path of literary renown striving

to craft belles lettres

versus another aim

ming to inject castigation,


fulmination, and intimidation

(unlike tours truly) into

hers/his epistemological dogmatic claim,

would exemplify the twofold tactic,

I matter of factly exclaim

as an aspiring August author

(foremost poet emeritus - ha),

downplaying fortune and fame


aye attempt to tread within

figurative noncontroversial guidelines,

yet nonetheless game

increased readership remaining


safely shy of steering

clear away NOT deliberately inflame

ming the moral majority, and/or

being soak halled politically incorrect,

yet absolutely aware trite neutral,

tis well nigh impossible

towing thru tranquil waters

subsequently inadvertently pitching


smoldering embers sparking acquiring

(even accidentally)

fiery Machiavellian jobname

though methinks expressing


notions, opinions, perspectives,

would contradict advocating viewpoints

incumbent within

creative arts whereat lame


duck role would essentially be

antithetical to general rubric maim

ming necessity to stoke thought

provoking oeuvre of work name

lee poetry and/or prose sans,


this scrivener to (dirt) poor

to afford a penname

aspiring all the same

to experience even pocket change

keeping my liberal

minded material tame.
