Bad Poetry

Bad Poetry is: immoral.
…gives you a bad cry
instead of a good cry.
…provides reason
for the unreasonable.
…conceives the self
in self pity—
a victim of verse.
…draws devil’s horns
on children of God
…fails to uplift
man to a greater calling.

Bad Poetry is: false.
…ineffective to convey the idea
to begin to grasp it.
…doesn’t honor
how one feels true.
…exaggerates with hyperbole
without a purpose.
…makes you
numb.
…make you
dumb.
…imprison you
not by walls
but enclosing thoughts.

Bad Poetry is: Ugly.
…murder to the
ears.
…follows a dystopia
nursery rhyme scheme
to describe pleasantries
to replace humans with robots.
…steals from the
common,
mundane,
cliche.
…puts others down
in non creative ways
and foul language just because.
…fails to see
the beauty to live.
…tells you
instead of shows you.
…serves only a cathartic
device to spew poison
than help heal others.

Even bad poetry
has to resemble poetry.
Even a bad man
must still resemble a man.

Sometime poetry
can be so bad.
You can’t just slam it.
You got to smack it.
Dare say, spank it.
Bad poetry!
You naughty little poem.
Get back here.
You shouldn’t exist on paper,
you worthless piece of shit.

  2. Bad poetry is immoral??! I guess I’m in a bit of trouble. I don’t know how to write any other kind. Vogons fly to this planet in order to get inspiration from my poetry. I heard they once assassinated a planetary ruler in the Crab Nebula using a poem I wrote about birds having bird-brains. Oh, well… at least I will be plenty warm after I die.

    • send me five words authormbeyer as obscure as you can. Every Tuesday going forward on YouTube and WordPress I will be publishing poems each made up of oddly matched words. I’ll be sure to plug in your blog. I don’t have many subscribers now, but I am working on it (only one week in.)
