The Pompous Poet

I thought my poem sedulous,
instead it turned out nebulous,
all who read, incredulous,
merit at best tenuous.

Its origin endogenous,
meter, rhyme preposterous,
spurious, anomalous,
muse morosely arduous.

Striving for poetical,
its words turned out pathetical,
useless and nonsensical,
amusement for the skeptical.

Might someone who’s methodical,
and skilled lexicographical,
alleviate its tragical?
Odds against are astronomical.
