Other people who write poetry
I read a poem once and I read instructions how to do it,
Of course I nearly gagged, like you, and said, "Screw it."
What is excellent in poetry does not catch this sailorís eye,
Should examine my conscience see where I went awry.
Just because they write fancy words that do not rhyme,
A university title and an obligation to waste your time,
These pompous so-called poets should be shut down,
Write love, laughter, life and death and not their own renown.
