Try as They Might

With just a "click" an instant pic:
All experts in photography!
The ubiquity- it makes me sick!
And makes the Art a mockery!

Take paper, pens- excuse to write:
Suddenly, all people are poets!
Even though each line is trite-
In the end, mostly...they blow it!

    On my way to find a stick/ I found a quack with seven hicks/ Each hick had seven hacks/ Each hack had seven chicks/ Each chick had seven shacks/ Shacks, Hicks, hacks, and chicks How many should I hit with a stick ?

    I agree with you on this one! Anybody can put pen to paper. But, if it is not out of passion or inspiration, it is not poetry. It takes effort and a lot of heart to become a master poet! You are on your way! Wonderful work, BP! :)

    Chan This is very strong and deep. You really went on a rant with this one. This is NOT the sweet friend I know. Is some anger management therapy needed. LOL HEE HEE Nice job Hugs Thanks for the awesome comment on my Drug Love poem.

    I just resent the presumption of "expertise" when people do not practice and endeavor to hone their craft. I hate "instant" supposed "mastery". It was rather a rant, wasn't it? lol Thanks for the review, sweet pea! <3

    Your wrath is duly noted! Which is why I am very cautious before posting anything...have you read my newest one?

    Hahaha. Judgmental, are we? lol. I couldn't agree with you more, friend mine. One pic of a bird in flight does not a photographer make. Lovely writing, as ever. Licia :-)

    Thanks, Licia. I'm tired of people thinking that just because they have the ability to take photographs or write that they have actual TALENT. It takes time, practice, patience and experience for a truly talented artist to hone and perfect their craft. I'm tired of hacks garnering undue accolades and sick of people deluding themselves into thinking they have talent when clearly they don't.
