~The Poet’s Poet~
The reviewers, could not have been more hostile.
Enough he ranted, pulse leaping out of his body
Blood on the brink of boil
It was a serious piece, not a parody.
That poem you offered is unfortunately fetid
You present with this monograph
Which we expected to be lucid
Instead it disappointed paragraph after paragraph.
The subject in our opinion lacked vitality
It need not have been complex
Given more thought it could have been a poem of intensity
He woke from the dream screaming syntax, syntax.
