You call this poetry
I'm sorry I must confess
Your recent work
Why, it's a complete mess
Your rhymes aren't good
The story's not compelling
Where's this going
There's really no telling
You think it's clever
I don't mean to criticize
But your latest poem
Put a hurting on my eyes
Are you embarrassed
You didn't print your name
But this looks familiar
So I'll guess just the same
What's that you say..
Oh my, can that be true
No wonder I recognized it
The poet's me and not you

    Hey Dave I have always admired you as a poet, and I rarely miss reading your poems. Your humble heart too stands you at the top of the ladder. Nice write, my friend....Peter

    Masterfully sarcastic, gloriously humorous! I think, some of us, certainly me, see ourselves reflected into the mirror of your poem. Now and then, all of us, should have this Socratic approach! Thank you Lyric Man, you made my day for now I know I am not...alone! Excellent!

    Cleverly done Dave..:)!!! And this has a double meaning as well addressing someone owning something which is owned by somebody..

    Well what can I say this is damn good, fantastic and hilarious, ok we all know that, but it also goes to show what a nice person you are! Cheers

    Got me Dave. I was thinking, is this the Dave who usually makes you feel good about your poetry? Nice one.

    Hi Dave, I Loved the humour In this one. Personally my Friend, I call It poetry. If I went by what I think of what I write I would never write another piece again. You,re just as good as anyone else Dave, don't think otherwise. This one gives me the giggles again. Words, flows, styles, stories, I never look at much, meaning they are secondary. The words and how they fit together that's what I always look at first.I really enjoyed this one. Have a good day. Catch you later. Your Friend alwaysMIKE

    Funny and Witty.It is good to be our best critics,eventually its What helps us grow in our writing, but don't be too harsh on David,lyric man..Give him some praise : ). There was a timr I was deleting many of my past poems,till I decided I should leave them there,to look at each failure,and every mistake, then learn from it.I have haiku which were not haiku,broken tanka,and so many I do not knows,especially in my first yrs here,but your poems are gr8 especially the non fiction ones an lyric.: )

    You underestimate yourself my friend! I know it is poetic licence but although the poem is quiet entertaining and well written, what you said in the last line is a fabrication!

    Ahh, Dave you are way to harsh on yourself, your muse and your golden pen. Give the man a break. All his other work is superb. lol
