Bad Example



My wife hates poetry

and also poets

she says they annoy her

and don't make any sense


I try to reason with her

but she says poets

are pompous and full of themselves


I hope she is not basing her beliefs on me

I am certainly not a good example

of a poet

then again maybe that's where

she got the idea from


I can't argue with her though


I tried it once

never again.

You are a good example of a poet.

I never argue with my Muse
It's Thalia, a she
You didn't know 'bout Thalia?
(She is not a he....)

What a silly rhyme is this
I am a bad example
How am I gonna end this verse?
Can only think of trample

I may be pompous and full, but I always make sense. Show this to your wife and renew her faith in poetry ?
