A Live Poetry Bomb

All people, fearfully call him a live poetry bomb,
because his rhymes are deadlier than bullet’s storms.
When fires stanzas through his mouth’s barrel,
hapless mind feels naked, in their wisdom’s apparel.
He often emails unsuspecting people to read his poetry
and coax and beseech them to post their commentaries.
Many victims who had fell to fatal gunshots of his poetry,
are still smarting from his deadly epitaphs in cemeteries.

He assembles vague paragraph and slices it into two half,
so to fire it as a poem, and soar up his statistical graph.
Whenever he is short of ammunitions for poetic fights,
he searches for explosives on rhyming dictionary’s sites.
Then he fuses combustive lines for his lethal mission,
so to blow up all the literature with atomic poetry fission.
Then he ruthlessly bombs his poem on all poetry websites,
wherein community of poets gather to taste literary delight.
Then he selfishly comments on other’s poems with fervour,
knowing well that others would gladly reciprocate his favours.

Everyone in the society dreads his nuclear poetic blast,
as it could push a poetic world into a literary holocaust.
People call him a poetic blitzkrieg of worst kind,
as he shamelessly shatters a fragile peace of their minds.
Even God the bard, duck downs bombardment from him,
for he mercilessly mutilates his inspiration’s streams.
Lo! all the wounded minds pray at mangled poem’s tomb
for God to descend and diffuse, ticking poetry bomb.

    Powerful poem, great imagery and expression. It's so true, I know of a poet who fits your description to a tee.
    A definite poetry bomb, double-edged words in poetry. You explained it very well. Thank you for sharing.

    but poetic holocaust when it comes to hitler, his people the germans then supoorted his views.He became leader therefore.Nobody was able to kill him.Not Gandhi who would be killed by his gujrati community man for chartering gujrati community as best and supporting the division of india of punjab and bengal.His leadership did not stop the darkness of Bengal or Punjab.Gujratis took over all british left industries and still rule the roost of india plunged into 3rd world now economically colonised by USA and europe to bail out their afghanistan debts.Too much white dependent still.Never helped any country become 1st world.Better to die like Afghans than to morph indigenous freedom in the name of development.Do read mine--Afghanistan and A Gandhian Gujrati Philosophy.

    I am guilty of some of your comments in your poem.

  • Cindy Kreiner Sera (4/3/2009 6:52:00 AM)

    Brilliantly written and what a subject - 'bombardment' or 'tongue in cheek' it needed to be said. May I never meet this 'blitzkrieg poet' on PH. - Cindy

    I’m Eddie Roa and I just got in to this website. By chance I came across your name in the list of poets and read some of your works.
    I have posted some of my poems today and yesterday. My style ranges from light to dark poetry (modern enough but not postmodern) and some Japanese verse forms like haiku, senryu and tanka. I hope you will bother to check out my work.

    Thanks and happy writing.
