Broke-Down Poem

 

The main thing about

writing a poem

is to know when

you get to the end

 

some poets do not

and go and on

until

like a car

they run out of gas

 

then they just park

and leave it on

the side of the road

 

a poet must know

where he's going

and stop when he gets there

 

unlike this poem

which started good

but then sputtered to a stop

 

now broke down

with a red tag

on its windshield

saying remove or be towed.

That's why I tend to start with an ending and work backwards (if that makes sense) 👍

Good theme. I recognise the evidence of its content down the years.
