Without the Dressing

It’s no wonder that some people do not particularly like poetry. There is such an amalgam of clever and intellectualised material out there which does not necessarily appeal to those readers just wishing to feel something rather than sifting through a puzzle of sophisticated word choices. I’m no poet laureate and if I can write stuff that non-poetry buffs can access emotionally then it will all have been worth it!

Peoples Poetry

It’s terrible how cerebral poetry cheats

Its readers blindfolded by pretentious beats

To very few normal folk this hog-wash speaks

Acclaimed-poet brains can send others to sleep

It’s wrong just to long for a word that sounds clever

We want to feel something,we don’t have forever!

The mess-fest says more than when style comes together

Unthread your wise head and let us see the tethers!
