“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.
