I'm Goona Copy

I’m surely gonna copy,
Be it poem, DVD or floppy,
And win Nobel Prize and trophy.

I will copy poets all
Whether they are big or small
Ya! No one can make me stop
Till I scale a fame’s highest top.

At the beginning of age
When God made men in his own image
He started this “Plagiarist” trend
Which I am not gonna end.

And what is creativity?
If not an ability to hide
a source of theft
with impunity.

When there is nothing
original under the sun,
Why should I copy not
and deprive myself of fun.

So I’ll copy them word by word
be they Pablo, Shakespeare or Wordsworth.
I’ll copy them from morn to evening
And would excel HITESH and Kipling.
Can you prove, they were not plagiarist,
And had not copy from some poet’s list.

You can inform FBI, KGB or CIA,
But I won’t stop my wanton ways.
And I will copy without shame,
Till I earn big name and fame.

I will copy till people start copying me,
And then and then only I will
give up this vice with glee.: -)

    funny but I'm sure it happens...I almost thought I had caught someone pliagarizing someone else in this site so I emailed the poet telling her someone posted her poem, same title, word for word! It turned out she had another username using a pseudonym and forgot she had posted the same poem earlier! (Report) Reply

    I've never identified a copy yet -but - sometimes I wonder what's in my subconcience. (Report) Reply

    Amusing subject. Launches a discussion, can a copy be better than the original? Yes, it can. Does it deserve as much credit as the original? No, tweaking takes less effort. (Report) Reply

    A light-hearted and extremely clever 'serve' at those who, rather than using others' works as inspiration, lift them hook line and sinker without acknowledgment. The subject of copying though goes way beyond poetic plagiarism - particularly in these days of 'instant' duplication. I buy my CDs and object to friends who ask if they may 'burn' the music I use. Unless the work in question is not longer available, I suggest that people buy their own. It irks me that in this 'something for nothing world' little is truly appreciated. You've certainly got me thinking with this one, Hitesh. Great poem. Love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ (Report) Reply
