Could you just imagine how sad this would be?

Significance Speaks

I had a dream last night

All poets were gathered

Not a contest just a meeting

To decide and limit jurisdiction

No more writing what you like

No more missed punctuations

Or grammar that makes no sense

No sense? To whom? I asked

I write for me! I like me grammar!

Well, ‘Poet’ is now a legal term

Can’t use it without prior deference

There’s too many people

Who demean our craft

And now we must insist

‘WE’ insist on poetic correctness

No more silly love poems

Making readers want to puke

No more humour that’s unfunny

Forcing its way for poetic space

No more pretending to be smart

Using ubiquitous meaningless words

Striking fear in the hearts of amateurs

Plucking ‘do lala’ sentences out of thin air

Philosophical nonsense to impress

Clanking sounds which just don’t rhyme

Causing headaches we cannot shift

If you must write, we must insist

Be poetically correct all…
