You're Reviewing The Situation

Poetry By: Indie Skreet

I posted this on FanStory after one 'reviewer' reviewed my work but didn't know the meaning of the word 'abhor'. She thought it was a typo and meant 'adore' which would have lost the double entendre I had created! Another reviewer clearly didn't know the meaning of satire and thought a poem, 'I Sin To Win' was autobiographical and told me she 'hated cheaters' lol lol lol! Not to confused with the Ron Moody version of similar name :)

You're reviewing the situation,
But your comments are really quite absurd
You're reviewing the situation,
But you don't understand the written word,
You give your expert point of view,
When you have really not a clue,
You have nothing better to do,
Cos when you speak, mistake what's true,
And now I give you what is due,
'I don't think very much of you',
Perhaps you ought to think it out again!

You're reviewing the situation,
Do you even own a damned dictionary?
You're reviewing the situation,
You'd be better at playing Pictionary
Before you choose to criticise,
I really think it would be wise,
To help you out of your demise,
Consider one or two new buys,
Thesaurus which you should revise,
Before you poke me in the eyes,
To help you usefully summarise,
Your work is really not that great my mate!

You're reviewing the situation,
You didn't even know the word 'abhor',
You are reviewing the situation,
You thought I meant to use the word 'adore'
And you admitted this to me,
Agreed should look at dictionary,
But you were simply too lazy,
You failed me quite abysmally,
When marked me so miserably,
And now you show quite visibly,
You have a disability,
I think you need to educate yourself!

You're reviewing the situation,
Made me over-think how I must write,
You're reviewing the situation,
Your reviewing makes me reply in spite,
You have shown me your short sight
And shown need for black and white,
To avoid others ignorant might,
Enforcing me to be quite trite,
Which makes me a little uptight,
I like to get my wording right,
Already pretty tricky plight,
Please think before you sink with cyber-sting!

You're reviewing the situation,
If you don't like what you are seeing here,
You're reviewing the situation,
Maybe it's just best you disappear,
Please do not kick me up the rear,
Or sling at me an ice cold beer,
Or prod me with a rusty spear,
Or bully me with extra fear,
Compose more words to simply sear
I trust message is crystal clear,
If not, just move to next one dear,
I think you'd better think it out again!
