I Hate Poetry - Poem by Aseso Omollo

Poetry, I do hate-

Mushy it is,

Pages soaked in tears,


Reader Advisory- Imagery and Symbolism in plenty!

Flowers for love, or

Love for flowers? - usually, Roses


Eccentric names in plenty,

Robert Frost,

Did he catch a cold?

William Butler Yeats,

Did the butler forget some yeast?


And what’s with the language?

Dost, Thy Toast, Thigh?


For rhyme, I listen to rap,

Tupac- My favourite,

But then, he was a poet!

    Nice I like it, original and crisp, except for the traditional soggy start. (Report) Reply
