If Only You'd Spent A Single Minute

Rating: 4.7

If only you'd spent only a single minute reading my poetry; out of those thousands of your hours; which you dedicated wholesomely to our child; at times deliberately stirring the mischievous devil within it,

Some people just don't like poetry. Your poem has a lot going for it, but the overall message seems like sour grapes, and has the unpleasant aroma of spoiled milk.

Your poem is well-written and carefully constructed, but your contempt is evident in nearly every line. I'll give you a 10 for honesty and craft- -and I'll hope this is a work of complete fiction. If it IS fiction, I applaud you for your creativity, too. 'Cause I do the same thing, somethimes.
