The Bad Poem


I'll lash you up foul poem,
And bind you in three knots.
I'll twist you till your stars
Won't shine, and
Your roses start to rot.

We'll burrow out a tiny hole
And plant you in the clay.
We'll put a muzzle on
Your moans so
Your whispers fade away.

    A poem with stars and roses? Pray tell. Very nice piece.
    The poem deserved it.
    You should go gardening until your fingers bleed that will teach
    Ya not to write about roses again. Well at least not in a conventional way. Allan Gerard~ (Report) Reply

    Don't strangle and stifle it to death! Let it breathe, so that it might please someone! Very interesting!

    I have never sung the dirge of any poem! However bad it is, I see that it survives! ! (Report) Reply

    SD, this is very funny and light. Reminds of the late, great Herbert Nehrlich's work (and trust me, that is a compliment; he was a master rhymer!) . (Report) Reply

    i KNEW this sounded familiar! who can remember all that has happened in the last three months? and i still like this....a lot. ya know, i used to write 'til for until, until i found that till is proper. your poem has 'till. i think that is a hybrid. (Report) Reply

    which one of mine WAS it? now that i have read it again, i notice you haven't done all that YET. or have you by now? or are you just a lot of hot air? you are really a pussy cat, not a dogg, right? and you wouldn't REALLY harm a poor little poem. to quote Sandy Player, below, Poor thing; it ain't it's fault.

    All of the sudden the poems in my graveyard started screaming at me. I better add another thick layer of cement over their gaping mouths. (Report) Reply

    We can feel your abuse of the bad poem as we read. Poor thing; it ain't it's fault. Ahhhhhh! I admit! The blame goes to me! ! ! Woe and more woe... (Report) Reply

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
