Twenty Ways to Ruin a Poem

entry picture

It’s best to sneak up on the reader.

Change the meter,

Change the rhyme,

Change the tone,

Or change the subject.

Try to do something unexpected,

Like confessing a crime

Or secret perversion,

Even in a

Short poem.

I'm sorta known
For ruining verse
Of other poets
(What a curse)

See, Randy while
Serious they be
I interfere
With commentary

Just like I
Am doing now ?
