A Poem Without A Spine Poem by Shaun Cronick

A Poem Without A Spine

Rating: 5.0

Writers can all kid themselves
A weary poem easily written.
Weary as in self defeating,
Twice shy and once bitten.

A poem so facile to do,
Just jig things around.
Make them sound poetic,
Words presented profound.

But what to end on,
In that closing line.
Maybe no moral message,
A poem without a spine.

For a poem to have a spine, it needs a good closing line.

An excellent criticism - -one should make certain they have a message before spilling words that rhyme all over the page. Top marks.

" A poem without a spine" - such an eloquent way of bringing this to attention. Though I enjoy mindless nothings, poems with spines always encourage me to get lost in a world of poetry. I've been gone a long time, you used to rate poems out of ten. I hope you're satisfied with only five.

A thousand pardons Bryony. I meant Bryony not Byony, it's been a long demanding day... Well that's my excuse and lets face it it is a good one. So my humble apologies once more.....BRYONY! H e l l hath no fury like woman scorned!
