Ten Steps

.

I would swear on a stack of Webster’s

Dictionaries these promises made

by unanimous vote are valid but I use

an on-line dictionary and can’t touch 

it like a sacred text.

.

Ten steps to writing well or better

is not enough steps. Such program

content is not massive enough

to sink in. Sometimes poets vote

against their best interest.

.

Twenty five is a good number. Poets

need a bit more time than other groups.

Limits are summarily raised all the time. 

Why not more words for writers of verse?

.

As bright as we are, we are a stubborn lot

and need more time to pro and con,

discuss, investigate, poll, and equivocate.

Yes, twenty five steps minimum.
