Di Da Da Da Da Da Di Dum - Poem by Raj Arumugam

di da da
da da da
di dum
what’s that?
I must have a message in my poem?
di da da
da da da
di dum
O, can’t I just be happy?
and hum:
di da da
da da da
di dum
what
I must have a cause
otherwise it defies reason?
like I found love
or got a promotion
or am going on vacation?
di da da
da da da
di dum
O, I’m just being me
as what I am this moment
di da da
da da da
di dum
dumadumadumadumaduma
dumadumadumadum
di di di di di di dum dum
di da da du da da di dum
must have a message?
you learnt long ago
as part of your craft
that poetry
or every piece
must have a message?
di da da
da da da
di dum
tra la la li li
la la la da da da da
di da da
da da di dum;
did you like that crescendo there,
sweetie?

    production of poetry becomes so much so it loses quality...i feel what i write should impress me first...some definitely lack beauty...as you said without content a poem even if beaitiful becomes an assembly of words (Report) Reply
