Generic Poetry - Poem by Myrtle Thomas

Generic Poetry


old style words from heart
called generic by some
are feelings laid out
to airwaves on poetry sites
no grand philosopher nor orator
who gives an unknown probable cause?

the neon lights are but for a few!
my wordage to some are a bad review
I'll try to change to abstract thoughts
and Penn a puzzle so elegant

rhyme and reason are hard to sell
so I'll sit and write from cobwebs in my head
generic is an old lady who wants to write
modernistic approach befitting today's generation
behold a spirit critiqued by neon lights

I'll try to see through a different eye
and meet a challenge of crossword writes
a mishmash of collected words from dark to light
critiqued as generic but that's alright.
