This Poem Stinks So Badly it Doesn't Deserve a Name

This poem stinks.

It doesn't rhyme 
It doesn't do anything 
It has a little alliteration


it will have some

because that's the easiest poetic element to incorporate 
and if it didn't have any poetic elements 
it would not be a poem 
but would be prose with 
carriage returns...

(are carriage returns extinct?)

and that would be dishonest. 

This is not a lying poem. 
That would be oxymoronic. 
It's a stinky poem.

And when I finish writing it 
I'm gonna print it out 
and tear it up 
into little bitty 
teensy weensy pieces 
(if I have enough patience to get that small) 
and flush it down the commode 
so it can join all the other 
excrementally effluential essences

(note the alliteration)

of all the other stuff that stinks 
almost as badly as 
this poem.

    I see what you mean, Nancy. Ha Ha. But I have 35 of mine in a special folder, labled Duds, that all come under the "stinko" catagory! In fact, it'll be 36 once I put "Drivel" in the folder. But thanks for your comments. Looking forward to hearing more from you. Hope you had a great weekend. Be well and best wishes to you and yours. Nice to meet you Too. luv Ralph
