Quo Vadis poetry, a damsel in distress? (Sonnet)

Captive damsel of creative-writing programs,   
Personalized, eulogized job of small groups,  
The frenetic activities handy to very few,  
Poetry now belongs to a subculture hew. 

We have accredited professional poets,   
Creative writing teachers at all levels,  
Composing computer- created poetry, 
Creating illusion of the Golden Age artistry. 

These professional poets have secured
Their own niches in the academic world, 
They cry over the spilt milk like jackals
Snarling over a dried-up well with no aims.

Quantitative work is guaranteed success,
Accuracy, meaning, technique matters less. 

Fourth place winner
Contest: Poetry for poetry's sake of Paula Swanson
Quo Vadis is a Latin phrase meaning "Where going"

    hmmmm That would apply to song lyrics as well me thinks, Dr. which at one time( in several types of music )were one and the same. Perhaps "meaning "went out the window with solid philosophy to be replace by relativism and anything goes. Thank you for the thoughts and for your welcome comments Dr Ram
