“Pretentious Poet”


Pretentious poet, pretentious poet.

The kind that always lets you know it.

Metered verse, a bland haiku.

A clever line, their ego’s fuse.


God’s gift to all,

a sullied ruse.

No offense too small,

for a misused muse.


Keep your rhymes,

you sly ghoul.

Vanity crimes,

deserve rebuke.


When writing poems,

respect the art.

Sincerity goes,

somewhat far.
