A USELESS POEM

Standard

By Tom H. Brooks 3

 

What a bunch of bullshit

it all is

this art

this writing

this poetry…

If you really look

If you pay attention

It’s all been said and done

before

by myself or others…

Beauty is a fleeting illusion

and ugliness can be beautiful.

The world is seen and heard

by everyone,

echoed a billion different ways-

it’s pointless

all of it-

what a load of crap

a useless waste of paper and trees

a bunch of

clever and amusing wordplay.

Poetry;

arranging

consonants      vowels

nouns     verbs     adjectives

at your leisure

on a whim

for your convenience

or boredom

or insanity…

just wordplay, I say,

nothing more,

but somehow

in the end

it seems

it could be more

than we expected…
