Me In The Third Person



Strangest thought just entered my head What if I critiqued my own poems D'ya think I'd really be tough on myself Or would you detect a slight bias tone Using the criteria of accepted norms I'd be down at the bottom, no bones But for humorous verse and originality Call me Oliver Wendell Holmes First I followed time honoured patterns Of poets that have gone on before But that's not what makes a poet of note Originality is what raises his score So go ahead and break all the rules That have been in place forever Develop your style of creative writing And be proud of your endeavour (My apologies to Oliver Wendell Holmes!) © Jack Ellison 2013

    Yea, yea, Jack. Where there's a writing line to toe, I'm sure to "untoe" it. Originality rocks. I love your poetry, my friend :)

    Does that mean I can be proud of my Troll poems? My dragon breaks the rules... Can I break the rules? UMMM... I think I already do... LOL I keep entering contests where I have trouble keeping my line count down... Whoa is me! Do I have to keep my line count down? My Trolls don't seem to want me to... What do you think Cathie? Could you tame my dragon for me?... Or solve my line count? Help me Obi-Wan Cathie!... I'm a b-a-d girl... LOL
