who is?

Who’s the finest poet in

The world?

 I inhale roses’scent

And spew words over

The land.

Fertilization it’s called.

Not that it helps

When we consider

That 99% of people

Don’t read poetry

And the literary 1%

Pretend they like poetry

Because it is

The cultural thing to do

Jan,

Your poem raises some interesting points. People will agree and disagree on who is the finest poet. I enjoy the poems of Pablo Neruda, W H Auden and Alan Ginsberg. We live in an age where culture is not accessible to the general public due to cost. Try booking a seat at the opera. In these times of apathy and disinterest most people are drawn to their TV screens and the diet that is offered. As you say there are the literary frauds who pretend an interest in matters cultural but these are false.

Thank you for this
Keith
