Critiquing Paranoia - Poem by Stanley Cooper

Catlike in their pouncing
Critics are
Most happy when denouncing
Go too far

How resourceful they can be
When finding MY mistakes
They critique with so much glee
I think they're all just flakes

They place my commas
And dot my Is
They're like watchful mommas
In disguise

Though I may sound paranoid
I know they're sorely needed
In keeping me critique annoyed
Critiqu-ers have succeeded
