Ah, yes, David, the old " Snob" attack! When it comes to quality in art, you're damn tootin' I'm a snob!
If you want readers to focus on your G8 message (such as it is) , write an email or a short essay or any kind of expository prose. That's what it's for—transmitting information. If you think couching that message in spastic meter, sing-song rhymes and worn-out phrases actually adds to the persuasiveness of your position, you're nuttier than a fruit-cake factory. If you knew ANYTHING about poetry and poetics, you would have been too embarrassed to send me that message above.
