I’m Lame, and Didn’t Even Know It!
Here I thought I was writing okay,
But I guess I’d be better off throwing my poems away!
I eagerly checked for comments left,
To see people’s reaction to the words I said
What I saw really opened my eyes
A belittling review from some self-important guy!
He didn’t like it, and wasn’t shy
About listing the reasons for said dislike
He said, “Here is the main reason, Mike
All of your poems are unmemorable
If these were available, they just wouldn’t sell!”
This guy fancies himself a reviewer of note,
I think he thinks so, but I don’t
What drives him to put other’s work down?
Maybe it’s the only talent that he's ever found!
