Complaints of the Complacent

"Writing is hard."

Not if you just try.

"I don't get it."

And you never will if you don't listen.

"I don't want to do it."

You make it sound like a punishment.

"Who really needs to be able to write anyways?"

Anyone who wishes to successfully communicate with others in the world.

"I can talk; thats good enough."

No it isn't.

"Mr(s).___, why do we have to do this?"

All you need to do is write a poem.

Three lines will do if that is all you can manage.

Stop complaining and venture into the new with eyes wide open.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

I am really just venting here. People both amaze and aggravate me.

just so long as the government is not involved or killing folks without cause, I usually stay pretty calm. THE RANT POEM is a tradition on postpoems, so when it gets crazed and aggravationed - let 'er rip. Check out SSmoothie for the ultimate rant posts - Star

Actually, I did get the inspriation for this rant by reading Smoothie's work, specifically and so? You're right, their posts are very ultimate.
