If You Can't Stand the Heat

Oh, my dear, 'tis plain to see
That you lack Humility
Why must you whine o'er rugged rhymes,
That ill-affect your poetry?

Helping hands are hither slapped,
At a mere suggestion
In thine self, bruised ego wrapped
When thy work is questioned!

Begrudge, me not, the better Poet:
I was right, and both we know it!

    A foolish person wrote a poem aimed at me for giving her "constructive criticism" on one of her pieces, so I decided to trash her, in an eloquent, yet humorous way lol. Thanks for dropping by and for all the reviews, Jake :)

    I read elsewhere in one of your comments you're a rhymester. I had to come check out your work and I'm happy I did. This is my first of yours and definitely not my last. I love your style (long name). Licia :-)

    Hi, Licia. I must confess that "rhyming" is really my only poetic forte; I feel it's what I do best and it makes me happy to hear that you enjoy my style; makes me feel immeasurably good inside; thank you. This was a "revenge poem" so if you like my work, I implore you to go back and read earlier posts. Thanks for dropping by, and you can call me TAP, in short :)
