Ph On Ph Poem by Deluke Muwanigwa

Ph On Ph

Rating: 4.9

Ph on PH

I would like to take the Ph on PH
To scientifically verify the acidity
Poetically clarify some validity
See how some poems fit the bill
Measure the writer's literary skill

Clint Eastwood said it very well
"There are two kinds of people my friend"
Those with a loaded gun and those who dig"
So even poets there many types i m afraid
Some write small, some write well and big

Some commit a crime don't rhyme
Others commit a sin their verse you can't sing
Scientifically their Ph on PH is zero
Poetically their status quo is hero

Some write politically sensitive issues
Some phoenetically make us use tissues
Their poems so moving you sob embarrased
Your life experiences making you feel harassed

Some are wrapt in getting the structure right
But the poem is vague just a nonsense write
Some poems are like movies so vivid
Clear in detail like ice when it's liquid

Knowing the forms if poetry very well
Is well and good and this we can really tell
But what is it you want say, say it well
So that your story someone else i can tell

Master Bruce Lee of the Jeet Kune Do fame
Said it well in his Game of Death game
Said, if you have become adept and proficient
Throw away all you learned, be efficient

I could go on and on and on and on and on...and on and on
But, there is a ring ring ring i think its my phone
I ask, what kind of poet are you, your Ph?
Who am i, though, just an upstart here on PH.

A 10 because you included Bruce Lee and Jeet Kun Do. A 10 because you have a Clint Eastwood saying. A 10 because this poem is clever! Can I rate with 30?

I have come back to say CONGRATULATIONS being worldwide the number ONE of most popular poets. Just an upstart as your last line tokld us, but very impressing being already the number ONE! Do not be sad if you will be like me going downwards again but please read dear Respected Master Poet Kumarmani Mahakul Sir's poem about my being number One, I am happy he wrote that Tribute on my being number One

A delightful poem on the different kinds of people in this world - particularly - the varied kinds of poets in Poem Hunter. What struck me, as i was reading the poem was that you are outright honest in your opinion and fearless too, in expressing your thoughts openly. I admire 'fearlessness' in a human being. You ended the poem in humour as an upstart in PH. Enjoyed reading your poem, dear Poet Deluke.........5 Stars

'See how some poems fit the bill Measure the writer's literary skill' - I am quite impessed by your good measure of 'literary skill'. Loved the poem and also loved the nice comment of @Geeta Radhakrishna Menon, who is also a great poet and a great master of performing arts as well.
