The Next Great Poet
So, I wanted to be the next great poet.
I wanted to encapsulate the American zeitgeist.
Hell, the world's zeitgeist
And I wanted to do it with savoir faire and elegance.
I wanted something that rhymed,
Because I wanted to be commended for-
Catalyzing the recrudescence of classical poetry;
Like some sort of prophesied artistic messiah;
Amalgamating the best of antiquity and contemporary stylings.
