UNRHYMED SONNET TO BE A DICK

Folder: 
BARD'S SHARDS

 

unrhymed sonnet to be a dick

forcing words with sloppy rhyme

a task for which I have no gut

so sold am I on unrhymed verse

 

I followed Dada and the Beats

Bukowski inspired some verse

I pretended a deeper meaning

could rise in my drunken ramble

 

I stumbled and bumbled along

words infiltrated innocent page

blue ink, black ink soiled the sheet

pen fused to hand, word image flows

 

Naively, poetry a term

we falsely thrust upon ourselves

 

 

Author's Notes/Comments: 

part of a poetry challenge.  I really wasn't up to writing a sonnet on a work night
