Kevin Revamped Beta IV
Kevin revamped beta four
hues dirty brown to boot,
he must be round the twist, we swore,
to give himself the boot.
Black pregnant raven perched resigned
on thorny issue stump
AP in mind, A pee behind
proceeded from his rump
For Kevin against fair game rules
had gone like Mary's lamb,
some critics say 'experience schools'
soon we'll be on the lam.
Who follows him from school one day
must seek elsewhere for tools
that foster writers' interplay
and take few souls for fools.
KEVINS KNIVES spells, cutting phrase,
though corkscrew spirals suit,
this suicidal tailspin phase
Why fix what seems working well,
flag play fad Facebook flute
though most detest it ? Warning bell
tolls tocsin for self-shoot.
All are browned off: Brown study dark
highlights an absolute
scorn for all artistic spark,
creative contents cute.
No killer app, but dust must bite
when self-destructive brute
persists in error all spotlight
mistaken, scarce astute.
Time, energy invested for
creation down the chute
are knocked for six, but AP store
shall harvest little loot.
Though web design is pretty poor,
as crazy as a coot
is colour chart: though clients roar
their influence seems moot.
With client base reduced to shell
and former poets mute,
pied piper's tune leads on to hell,
few poets in pursuit!
'Tis bitter pill to swallow! Flight
for greener fields en route
appears solution second sight
upholds; few do dispute.
Impose design so ill thought-out
is bitter, poison fruit,
fruitless to rant, rage, pull hair out,
gloom looms, dooms new recruit.
If beauty lies beholders eyes
seem somewhat up the spout,
who lies lies hue, deep blue surprise
sees red, 'nough said: bail out!
