Critical Readers - Poem by Sylvia Chidi

Critical emptiness I perceive
From some readers
They have no idea of entertainment
Only masters of displaying envious resentment

My words give you no right to talk
And make unnecessary comments that suck
Why such negativity
When all I share with all is my creativity

Critical readers
Before you key in words of condemnation
Into my commentary space
Be sure to be an established Poetic Leader

For if I look into your poetic page
And see only an empty hopeless space
Or a few pieces of poems hanging loosely
All over the place
I will only say, you are an ultimate disgrace!


When I write, I do so to entertain, not to get advise from wannabe Train the Trainers. My poem What is music to you is a fantastic poem to me. If you don't like it, keep your fingers in your pocket.

    Go Sylvia! Constructive is not destructive, but unsolicited is a waste of my time and yours. Fabulously sharp-tongued wit. Warm regards from an instant fan. (Report) Reply
