A Non Existent Phrase - Poem by Francis Duggan

I have been described as one of illiterate rhyme
A non existent phrase but for everything there is a first time
By a would beliterary critic who does not write well
Since she or he need lessons on how to spell
A real literary critic would hardly describe true as troo
With a course in writing in language this person could do
But then what you do not know of you never miss
And to some people anyway ignorance seems bliss
She or he is entitled to their opinions just the same
But i notice that this person to their comments does not put their name
From the readers behind their true identity they hide away
Which renders their comments as worthless in truth one can say
To the writer of these comments my advice to you
Is put your name to your words and learn how to spell true.
