ode to piss-poor poet

Kevin Michael Bloor

I’ll conjure up, create, compose
a poem, which to you, I s’pose
sounds easy, like a piece of piss:
put pen to paper, make ‘em kiss!
How hard - you ask - is writing rhyme.
It takes no talent, only time,
you’d think! Though don’t dismiss desire,
and muse, who forges in the fire
sweet inspiration from the gods:
not wasted on self-centered sods!
Just wordsmith wizard wielding wand,
rogue rhymester, who of words is fond,
a poet proud, with poise and pose,
who pisses on pathetic prose.

    Anyone can rhyme
    It only takes a bit of
    Er? Er? Cake?
    Made me chuckle. Thanks for that

    • Kevin Michael Bloor

      You're welcome 😊. Just a bit of fun. Someone said to me that anyone can write rhyme. So I penned this. πŸ˜† lol😁

      Hmm, I know this is a bit of fun, but it seems to look down on prosaic poetry. I love rhyme AND free verse, if it is well written and poetically expressive. The free verse of Sylvia Plath or T. S. Eliot can be simply sublime! Long live poetry, in its many forms and guises, I say.

        Apologies. I love prose. I was just messing. Someone told me rhyme was easy. So I let rip. 😁

        • Distant View

          No apologies needed. Rhyme can be difficult to do without it coming across as being forced or stilted. You avoided those pitfalls admirably!

          I can't say that last line after a sherry or three! lol.

          • Kevin Michael Bloor

            🀣. I know, it is a bit of a mouthful. 😁 thanks for taking the time. πŸ˜‰

            'Though don’t dismiss desire,
            and muse, who forges in the fire'

            'a poet proud, with poise and pose,
            who pisses on pathetic prose.'
            thank you, dear Poet

            • Kevin Michael Bloor

              Thanks LB. I apologise for the language. I usually try to keep my poems clean. Just in a funny mood.

              • L. B. Mek

                no need, it was language used with purpose
                the poem wouldn't be the same without it..
                if you're not hurting anyone
                express yourself as you wish, dear Poet

                Although I only write in rhyme, they can be difficult but as you say the "muse who forges in the fire" must be present! Good one!
