My Great And Terrific Poem - Poem by Brian Mayo
I’d like to tell everyone about
the great poem I’m going to be writing
It’s really going to be terrific.
I don’t want to reveal too much
but I promise you
it will contain many great words and terrific poetic
phrases and I’m sure as you’re reading it you
will be very impressed with
how terrific it is.
You will say to yourself,
“Golly, this is really great! ” or
“Whoa, this guy’s a terrific writer…! ” or even,
“Boy Howdy! Did you see that enjambment? ”
After you finish reading
my great poem, many
of you will feel something
akin to jealousy.
It’s a normal human
reaction- -especially after viewing a poem as
terrific as the one I’m going
to be writing.
It’s important that you recognize
talent like mine is a fluke- -an
incredibly rare and precious gift
that the common man (you) will never
Your only option is
to marvel at my greatness and try like hell to copy my terrific style…
You’ll fail, of course, but it’s okay- -I realize
you have to try.
I can’t wait to get started…
I mean, the sooner I finish,
the sooner the accolades will pour-in.
It’s really going to be great.
