Rant.... [a short ranting poem about poems/poets; tongue-in-cheek]


Poems MUST be subtle!
Else them I’LL SCUTTLE! !
NEVER make the meaning clear!
From clear meaning YOU MUST ALWAYS STEER! !

ENOUGH! of poems about Loves.
REMOVE those boxing gloves! !
Give us GRIEF, and HATE, and GORE!
“Endearing” poems must exist NO MORE! ! !

And DAMN! your poets’ tricks!
I’ll HIT you HARD with STICKS …..
if spelling or punctuation FAILS,
and empty on you......PIG SLOP PAILS! ! ! !

Poet's Notes about The Poem

a PH friend :) , Elena Plotkin, used the word 'rants' to refer to some of my poems. she does love me, but i thought the word rant rather odd to use. so i said i might write a poem about rants. i looked it up in the dictionary, and this is the result. but you poets...whether friends or otherwise...don't let me scare you! i'm a pussy cat. [well, she never SAID she loves me]
