Poets are not entitled
Poets are just people
they fuck each others wives
they have hate and greed and envy
and ordinary lives
Karadzic was a poet
his words were worth forgetting
and though many still don’t know it
he was subliminally blood letting
Don’t place too high a value
on the access to expression
read a little history
and learn a worthwhile lesson

In response to the often elevated status of poets and the recognition that they do not exist solely for good, worth remembering.
There is nothing exclusive about poetry, we are all receptive to it in different ways.
