Choke On A Poem

No; You are not a poet.
When words don't rhyme, and you know it.
Writing the words just to post it.
No jackass that's not a poet.

Have you ever read a nursery rhyme?
Every story ends with a rhythmic line.
People wrote them way before our time.
Take a lesson from what was written by past poets.

People who write things just to write.
Most know when it's time to say Goodnight.
Not pass their crap off on a public site.
They understand that a poem reflects the poet.

Shall we now reiterate?
Stop posting what you think is great.
Poems are not something that you can fake.
You have no talent to call yourself a poet.

Why are you writing like a scatter mind?
Hurting the words that were meant to shine.
Give us a break and please stay offline.
Understand what it takes to be a poet.

A poet writes from the heart.
With words that ensnare you from the start.
A story that has real meaning.
So a person will feel what they are reading.

Poems are words to enjoy.
Not like yours that annoy.
Anyone can put some words together.
But it takes a real poem to last forever.

Some websites will let you post anytime.
Incoherent words without any rhyme.
So please once again; Will you stay offline?
Because my friend you are not a poet.
