Poet's Memorial - Poem by gershon hepner

Ideologically deficient,
a person no one needs,
my words are insufficient
to justify my deeds,
and don’t deserve an effort
to give me your attention.
I’m like a verb that’s severed
from subject; no declension
helps me with conjugation,
and rules that are irregular
lead me towards evasion,
religiously when secular.
Incompetent when pleading
my cause in all my verses,
I don’t deserve a reading
that no one reimburses;
don’t even pay attention––
the price would be too steep.
The mother of invention
sees me, and falls asleep.

    Think I'll give up listening to the news and come to your poems to keep informed of what's going on around me. Suit you, Gershy?
    Yours cheekily,
    Gina.: -)
