Sycophants Solicited - Poem by doug bentley

i am planning on collecting
a tiny little coterie of fawning
sycophants whom i can count
on to praise whatever drivel,

no matter how maudlin or trivial,
that happens to short-circuit
between my brain and my pen.
so please stick a thought below.

it need not have anything to do
with this poem. it matters not.
whatever thought might pop
into your head - just write it down.

the point is your name will appear
forever below this lousy poem here
and i will surely rocket to fame
no matter how saccharine or lame.
