Should I just hit delete
and remove it from my sight?
Should I instead repeat
written failures of a previous night?
It’s quite contrary when jotting stuff,
its taxing on the brain,
quite frankly it’s real tough
to make this short textual presentation follow a cohesive rhyme scheme and stick within the boundaries of a competent iambic pentameter.
Frankly, it’s all trial and error
with as much guesswork as is success,
so you can imagine to my terror
the idea of creating a jumbled, grammatical mess
I never did like poetry
and really, for good reason
I mean, what the fuck rhymes with “poetry”
other than that, it’s just never in season
At least as far as I can tell,
Poetical news is hardly my thing,
a channel on that, they do not sell,
it’s something they won’t bring
I don’t know where this is going
which is hardly a surprise,
The only purpose of this thing
was to openly self-criticize
Yes, I said I wanted to diversify
and that is what I shall do
However, as time flies by
I realize; “boo hoo,
I can’t be good at everything
and poetry is my Moriarty,
So to the table I must bring
something a tad less artsy-fartsy”
I haven’t bothered to count the syllables
This disaster was written ironically
I really have no principles
When it comes to poetic quality.
How does one end a poem?
This monstrosity that I’ve created?
Because I can’t think of a word that rhymes with poem.
You’re welcome folks. I really need to do something more productive with my life. For the record, poetry is awesome, and the people who can do it are extremely talented; it’s just that I can’t, and am extremely bitter about it as a direct result.
