Sentenced To Death Poem by Adrian Cox

Sentenced To Death

Rating: 5.0

Hanged from the gallows
of creative writing.
Swinging from the gibbet
of sentence construction.

With grammar that stands
on the essence of her voice,
the alphabet hung as a necklace
around the vocality of her wordy neck.

She'd wanted to
swallow all the letters
in quick succession
punctuation as well,

but that would have been suicide.

Nice and very nice the illustration of disliking in the field of creativity. Perhaps todays poetry is for silent reading of a lonely reader. Not for listening, but sometimes the reverse dominates the situation. Poet stands alone the other part of a long string to find the identity. Again I feel its a nice piece of work.
