All The Poets Are Like Zombies - Poem by Liza Sud

All the poets are like zombies
wish to know exactly - whose?
from what moral tribe they arose,
or so, from fleshly doom.

and only then to listen,
hierarchy to know.
but noone will tell the secret
and answers to us disclose.

    L o L! Eccentric? Most definitely...Zombies? Only the ones who think their better than they are, find out they're not and go into a walking coma.....God, I'm glad I'm not a Poet! ! ! Good work, LiZa... Hmmm...Hope that 'Z' doesn't stand for... never mind ~FjR~ (Report) Reply

    Come, come now, I prefer to be excluded in that assessment. Read mine - We the Unencumbered -

    Hi Liza, Sometimes I feel detached from reality and living in a dream. I guess this come along with being somewhat of a frivilous and gentle spirit. Thanks for sharing, Paul (Report) Reply

    Verily, poets and their poetry remain a mystery as that of zombies.

    The last two lines strike me as the essence of this poem: NO ONE WILL TELL THE SECRET AND ANSWERS TO US DISCLOSE. The mystery at the heart of things will remain a mystery. With respect to poets that is probably the mystery of their inspiration and the source of their creativity, neither of which they (we) can possess like ordinary knowledge. Isn't that why WE love music like Mahler's 9th? It gives us the sense of being at the heart of hidden things, of being enveloped by their wonder even if we don't understand them. (Report) Reply

    This is a very clever poem! So... All poets are the walking dead... And what kind of knowledge do those who die and then rise up again alive, but in their dead bodies know? ;) . So deep and comedic at the same time. Well done! (Report) Reply
