Quantity Versus Quality - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar
Quantity versus quality is easily achieved,
For those seeking to rush a production of insignificance.
To make claims of something gained.
But clearly a waste of initiative...
Leeched to seek attention sought.
At the expense of another's originality.
Maggots wouldn't exist,
If they were not fed a reason.
And I am told the best 'maggots' are kept,
Where expressions of flattery and duplicity,
Of ideals to lift and label quickly as one's own...
Are better appreciated in that kind of climate.
