Scream Of An Ugly Butterfly Poem by Kevin Patrick

Scream Of An Ugly Butterfly

Rating: 5.0


My spelling is quite atrocious
And my grammar is perplexing
I'm not literately ferocious
Which makes reading me quite vexing

I've not been lauded for my ideas
To which I'm told their all quite trite
And my spark light is just average
For a genius that's not so Bright

My meters rarely rhyme which is a poetic crime
A larceny in artistry to which theirs only spat
And my cadence is a match to the stomach of a fly
But I'll be dammed if I were called another senseless Hack


I'll never be the critic's friend
Or the readers hip top 10
For this is only medicine
To escape my fascist discipline

For I write just too survive
And Scream for the ugly butterflies

I've not been lauded for my ideas To which I'm told their all quite trite And my spark light is just average For a genius that's not so Bright. Poetry writing has catharsic effect it is true. Writing becomes medicine. sometimes it is better than taking all kinds of chemicals in the form of tablets. tony

I know how you feel Leeann, I think its a related human feeling, that's why I think art exists as a spiritual band-aid that gives us a small reprieve. I look forward to reading your latest work! .

Actually Sally I was inferring to people in general, men, women, trans or those undecided. In general I was referring to myself and all those who live in societies margins. Hope all is well.
