NOTICE THE POEMS FOR CRYING OUT LOUD.
THEY'RE NOT JUST FLOATING AROUND LIKE CLOUDS.
READ THE **** VERSES, IT'S NOT LIKE THEY ****;
BUT IGNORE THEM AND MAYBE IT'S I WHO WILL.
POEMS, I TELL YOU, ARE NOT WASTES OF PRINT,
NOT JUST MANDATED CIRCULATION HINT.
DON'T DARE FLIP THE PAGE WITHOUT LOOKING TWICE.
I TRIED TO WRITE THIS ONE WHILE BEING NICE.
POEMS ARE GROOVY AS ANYTHING ELSE.
I WON'T LET THEM GO DOWN INTO SEVEN HELLS.
READ THESE WORDS, MAYBE, YOU'LL PICK SOMETHING UP.
SOMETHING TO FILL MINDS LIKE LAME EMPTY CUPS.
MAYBE YOU'LL THINK THAT THE RHYMES ARE BORING,
BUT I DISAGREE. HAVE YOU EVER READ GORING?
TRY TO READ OTHER THAT SPORTS OR DULL ADS
IN NEWSPAPERS, MAGAZINES, PUBLICATION FADS.
WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO CAPTURE YOUR BORED EYES...
MAYBE THESE ALL CAPS OF UNCOMMON SIGHS?
DO NOT BYPASS POEMS, THEY'RE NOT ALL SAD ****.
MAYBE YOU'LL FIND YOU SOME HUMOROUS WIT!
READ THE HERE POEMS, I MIGHT NOW SAY PLEASE.
GIVE THE SATISFACTION, THE AUTHOR APPEASE.
****, IF NO ONE READS, TO DEATH NOW WITH WRITING!
GOODBYE TO THE PURPOSE OF *PUBLICIZING.
Alright, so it possibly isn't clear that I was probably mad. I am aware it sounded redundant but it is true. I have had a history of poems rejected for the school paper, even then, I'm bothered by how poems are somewhat the least noticed in any publication. That's just my opinion. No one seems to read them. I'd like to know what my fellow poets think.
